On December 15th, a very moving event took place on our campus.  Our Program partnered with the Schneier Program for International Affairs, the Stern Social Justice Society, and the YC Tzedek Society to bring a superb panel of distinguished visitors to discuss this very current topic.

 

Provost Botman opened the event, and the panel, moderated by Dr. Ruth Bevan, the Chair of the Political Science Department, was composed of Mario Sauder, the Consul for Political Affairs of the German Consulate in New York; the Award-winning Syrian journalist and documentary film maker Zaina Erhaim from Aleppo, Syria; and NYU Law Professor Muzaffar Chishti, Director of the Center for Migration Policy. They considered different aspects of the crisis in Syria, its impact on the daily life of its people, and the reactions in Germany and some of the other countries in the EU to the influx of refugees escaping from the war.
