Event description

Description

Over 11 million Syrians have fled their homes since the outbreak of the civil war in 2011. The question of what Western states such as the US owe to refugees is thus a pressing one. This panel will bring together political theorists and philosophers to discuss a range of interconnected issues that arise in this context. Should the US let in more refugees, or can it meet its global responsibilities in other ways? If more refugees should be admitted, does there need to be assistance offered to help them adapt to their new situation? What constraints need to be placed on military action abroad in order to provide sufficient security those fleeing warzones?

Featuring:

Jovana Davidovic (University of Iowa)
Yasemin Sari (University of Northern Iowa)
Christopher Heath Wellman (Washington University in St. Louis)
