International Migration During Uncertain Times: What Triggers the Flow?

March 18, 2021, 7:00 PM8:00 PM


This collaborative event between the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs at Colby College and the Maine Chapter of the Fulbright Association will focus on the very topical subject of international migration and the global circumstances (such as the coronavirus pandemic, climate change and food insecurity) that drive its flow. The event represents a unique and important opportunity to bring outside experts in the field together with Fulbright alumni, Colby faculty, and their students. Additionally, the topic is certainly global in scope, targeting mutual understanding between peoples of the world, and therefore, important and timely for a 75th Celebration of the Fulbright Program.

The panel discussion, to be held from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., will be moderated by Professor Christel Kesler, Associate Director of the Goldfarb Center at Colby, and will consist of three presenters: Erol Yayboke, Deputy Director and Senior Fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS); Dr. Susan Rottman, anthropologist and faculty member in the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences at the University of Southern Maine; and Kathleen Newland, Senior Fellow and co-founder of think tank the Migration Policy Institute.

This virtual event is public and all are welcome to join. Registration is required.
