Immigration today: Are we abandoning our values?
Featuring Susan Gzesh and Alma Begicevic, MA'99
Susan Gzesh, Executive Director of the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights at UC, will discuss the difference between migrants and refugees, and she will explain the history of why there is such a large undocumented Mexican population in the US, based on changes in US law.
Alma Begicevic, MA’99 (Human Rights) currently teaches Sociology at Loyola University Chicago and previously taught international law at the American University in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Alma will give an overview of the most recent migrant crisis from a global perspective, focusing on Eastern Europe, and will discuss the responses to this crisis.
There will be plenty of time for questions and a discussion.
