2017 Annual Fall Symposium on Migration: Innovations and Ideas in a Changing Landscape

3 October 2017
Columbia University, School of International and Public Affairs, 420 W. 118th St., Room 1501, New York, NY, USA

In the face of increasing worldwide hostility towards migrants, there is a counter-movement of innovators and thinkers propelling solutions that address migration challenges, bringing fresh ideas to embedded issues. The 2017 Migration Symposium will feature conversations with leading innovators and thinkers from academia, government, private sector, and social enterprise, leaders who are designing creative solutions in the field of migration.

Join the conversation as experts discuss questions like: How can states adapt to a rapidly changing world with more migrants? Who has the responsibility to provide innovative ideas to address migration challenges? What are the ethical challenges to merging technology with international aid? How can states, cities, and institutions adapt to a world where migration, especially forced migration, is an everyday reality?
The 2017 Migration Symposium will be held on Tuesday, October 3rd at the Kellogg Center at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. Reception to follow.
