Europe's Refugee Challenge: Responses to an International Crisis

Set against the backdrop of Europe’s largest humanitarian crisis since World War II, this discussion will focus on the situation on the ground in countries that are most exposed, either as points of entry or as final destinations for refugees. Are national governments and EU institutions doing enough? What kind of domestic opposition is emerging in response to national policies? What societal and cultural challenges are refugees encountering upon arrival? What concrete steps must be taken to handle this crisis? To explore these issues, we will be joined by a panel of experts focused on both general and regional European responses.
