The World Refugee Crisis

With Michael Abramowitz, director, USHMM Levine Institute for Holocaust Education; Elisa Massimino, president and CEO of Human Rights First; and T. Alexander Aleinikoff, visiting professor, Columbia University; moderated by Nadine Strossen, former president, American Civil Liberties Union (1991-2008)

The refugee crisis is an agonizing issue that has become even more fraught with the recent attacks in Paris. Since the start of the conflict in Syria, more than 250,000 people have died and 12 million have fled their homes, making this the worst refugee crisis since World War II. Cautioning against indifference to the suffering of others, leading scholars examine whether or not we are doing enough.
