The Global Forced Migration Crisis: Project Launch

July 25, 2017 • 10:00 – 11:30 am EDT
Please join the Project for Prosperity and Development to launch a new project on the global forced migration crisis. More people are forcibly displaced now than at any time in human history. Beyond the instability in Syria, over 65 million people from around the world have left their homes to escape conflict, famine, disaster, persecution, food insecurity, and unstable governance. The paths of these people could lead them a few miles from their origin, across borders into transit countries, or into protracted displacement in destination countries in Europe or elsewhere.
Over the next year, CSIS will research the journey of these millions of people and what it means for the developing world landscape, and how the U.S., its allies, the public and private sectors, NGOs, academics, government, and security can play a vital role in confronting global displacement and migration.

This project is made possible by generous support from the Ford Foundation.
