This international forum will discuss the greatest migration upheaval taking place in Europe since the end of World War II. In 2016 alone, Europe received close to a million asylum applications. Panelists Dr. Martin Geiger from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada; Dr. Ioannis N. Grigoriadis and Esra Dilek, both from Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey; and Dr. Polly Pallister-Wilkins from the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, will discuss how Europeans are handling the migration crisis and what European officials have learned in the past three years, along with how this crisis might impact Americans and how to prevent similar crises in the future.
