American Immigration Council webinar: The State of Immigration After the 2020 Election: What’s Next?
There have been over 900 changes to the U.S. immigration system over the past 4 years. Join the American Immigration Council for a virtual panel discussion on the top immigration issues that will be addressed within the first 100 days, and what issues will take longer, and what issues may not change at all. Tue, Nov 10, 2020 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
The annual academic and policy conference of the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) will examine migration scholarship and policy at a time of multiple crises for migrants, refugees and their communities. These crises include the COVID-19 pandemic and related policies, its disastrous economic fall-out, and the deep social inequalities it has exposed and exacerbated. Other relevant crises include systemic racial injustice, as highlighted by the demonstrations in the wake of George Floyd’s murder at the hands of police, the ravages of climate change, rising exclusionary nationalism, the crisis in refugee protection and migration governance, and US immigration and refugee policies under the Trump administration. The symposium is free to attend and will take place virtually. Advance registration is required. November 10, 2020 10:00 am-4:00 pm Eastern Time.
