Minnesota is home to an array of immigrant and refugee communities and part of the global conversation on policies, program, and realities that impact the lives of millions. Please join us for a special event on this topic with a keynote address delivered by Eric Schwartz, former Humphrey School dean and current president of Refugees International, followed by a panel discussion (see panelists below). The discussion will explore the linkages between global refugee and migration policies and the realities of those programs for Minnesota communities. The Joseph J.
