European Migration Panel


Europe’s Migration Crisis 

March 21 | Noon | Room K2A | Klein Hall

More than one million migrants and refugees reached Europe’s shores in 2015.

Which Member State(s) should bear the responsibility of hosting refugees? How will this large influx impact Europe’s regional stability?  Why are so many forced to flee for Europe’s shores? This panel will allow students to learn from leading researchers in EU law and international migration about the complex questions surrounding Europe’s ongoing migration crisis.
