Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs. Read the Great Decisions briefing book at home, then come and watch a short DVD and discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. Weekly series of 8 sessions, each with a different topic. Registration is required so briefing books may be ordered. (Books are an expense to the library. While you do not have to attend each session, please be mindful and check your schedule before you register. It is only necessary to register once.)
This week's topic: Refugees and Global Migration
Today, no countries have open borders. Every state in today’s global system has its own laws and policies about who is permitted to cross its borders, and how they will do so. Who determines whether someone is a refugee or a migrant? How have different countries, including the United States, reacted to migration? How effective are the international laws, policies and organizations that have evolved to assist and protect refugees and migrants?
