Immigration, refugees, displaced persons: These issues are capturing headlines and shaping politics around the world. Recent waves of irregular migration have brought economic, political, and social challenges the world over, contributing to highly publicized upheavals across much of Europe and North America, as well as in other regions of the world. Yet when smart, proactive policies are put into place, both migrants and host communities can thrive.
The Atlantic Council is hosting a panel discussion on how communities around the world are building resilience through practices dedicated to mitigating the cost and maximizing the benefits of immigration. The event will feature the launch of a new report by Adrienne Arsht Center for Resilience Nonresident Senior Fellow, Amy Pope, formerly the Deputy Homeland Security Adviser to the National Security Council.
