Marriott Balcony B (Marriott Wardman Park)The United Nations High Commission for Refugees recently reported that there were nearly 60 million displaced people in 2014, half of them children (New York Times, June 18, 2015). The question of refugee migrations promises to remain a contentious issue due to international conflicts, political instability, and environmental degradation. This session presents research on refugee migrations and resettlements, which seeks to develop a new understanding of this politically charged issue.
