The regular seminar "Migration studies". "The 2015 Refugee Crisis: Four Years after, where are We at?", Tawat Mahama
On November 14, 2019 a session of the regular seminar "Migration studies" organized by the Higher School of Economics Institute of Social Policy: The 2015 Refugee Crisis: Four Years after, where are We at?, Tawat Mahama (Higher School of Economics, Moscow) was held.
In the summer of 2015, more than one million refugees, mostly Syrians, arrived in Europe after a trek from the Middle East, spawning one of the largest migration crises since the Second World War. While these refugees drew the ire of some governments, others were more welcoming. But all were faced with the difficulty of re-settling such a large number of people among a public increasingly critical. Four years later, where are we at? What have we learned? This talk will take stock of the situation by analyzing it at three levels: international, regional and country level through some case studies.
The seminar was held in English
