The perennially popular noontime conversation series Great Decisions returns to Portland State University January 18 - with another round of riveting discussions on the ideas, people, and issues changing the face of the globe. Can't make any of the 8-week series, not a problem - we'll be streaming it live

Refugees and 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?

Speaker: Maureen Hickey, Portland State University
