Immigration, Migration, Refugees, and the 2016 Election

September 26 - September 27
Various Times
Various Locations

The 2016 US Presidential election is likely to be defined as one of the most important since WW II and certainly one that will shape and define global and domestic policies for the next 50-100 years. There are a number of issues including jobs, inequality, education, gender, free trade, terrorism, and multiculturalism that are central to this election. Yet is it the issues of immigration, migration, and refugees that have dominated the primary season and will largely dominate the general election cycle.

This one and a half day conference focuses on the issues and attitudes as well as the historical, economic, and legal dimensions associated with people immigrating, migrating, or seeking refugee status. The conference brings together experts from a variety of disciplines and allows ample time for interactive dialogues between presenters and conference attendees.

The Minor in Global Markets & Society builds a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences for the study of global business-society relations. You develop a holistic understanding of the forces shaping global markets through an interdisciplinary curriculum that integrates historical, cultural, political, economic, and geographic perspectives. You will study topics such as corporate social responsibility, fair trade, global supply chains, and sustainable business practices, among others.

Students interested in pursuing this minor should attend an upcoming information session. All information sessions are held in the LAS Global Studies Conference Room located at 703 S. Wright Street, 3rd floor (above Women's Resources Center).
