The Radcliffe Institute will host a panel discussion to explore topics of pressing global concern: refugees, forced migration, and internally displaced people. The speakers—which include a professor of law, a medical doctor working with Syrian refugees, and an independent photographer—will focus on the Syrian refugee crisis with special attention to issues of gender and family. Discussion will highlight some of the forces that compel the uprooting of millions of people from their homes and lands and will help us better understand the shape, context, and on-the-ground realities facing Syrian and other refugee communities in 2016.
