Great Decisions*
Session One:  Global Migration

Today, no countries have open borders. Every state in today’s global system has its own laws and policies about who is permitted to cross its borders, and how they will do so. Who determines whether someone is a refugee or a migrant? How have different countries, including the United States, reacted to migration? How effective are the international laws, policies and organizations that have evolved to assist and protect refugees and migrants?  We thank Kirk Ressler, who will again moderate this season’s series of discussions.  For more information on the program and to purchase a series guidebook, please contact Jocelyn Ozolins: jozolins@silibrary.org.
