Rethinking Religion and U.S. Diplomacy: Refugee Resettlement Policies

December 7, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

From the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs:

United States policies towards refugees demand new approaches as the new administration plans to take office in January. The roles that religious institutions play both in historical practices of resettlement and in public attitudes towards global and national approaches to forced migration are important to a comprehensive understanding of the crisis of displaced persons. The Berkley Center is engaged in ongoing research and reflection on these grave challenges.

This conversation will focus on ways in which refugee resettlement is taking place at the community level. Berkley Center Director Shaun Casey will address the overall challenges that lie ahead for United States refugee policy. Emily Linn and Jessica Goudeau, who each work on refugee resettlement issues in their communities and with individuals who are in the process of resettling in the United States, will focus on community-level responses. Berkley Center Senior Fellow Katherine Marshall will moderate.

This event is co-sponsored by Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and its Global Human Development Program.

The Zoom Webinar link and instructions will be sent out on the morning of the event to anyone who has filled out the RSVP form.

This event will be recorded and a captioned video will be posted to this page after the event date. Please RSVP to receive an email notification once it is posted.
