NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) will again host its Intellectual Conversations. The next one, second in the fall series, is scheduled for noon-1 p.m. Thurs., Oct. 27. The theme of this conversation is “Migration,” and will feature Timothy Dixon, J.D., associate professor in the Department of History and Political Science. He will discuss “Migration: The European Union and Refugees.”
European Union have experienced a massive influx of migrants – refugees from conflicts, oppression and economic despair. It has been described as the largest migration of refugees since the end of World War II. This migration has created many difficulties for the receiving countries and the migrant population. As the migrants have come from different countries, they have varying reasons for their search for a new life in Europe. The sheer numbers of persons has created different political, social and economic problems for European nations and their populations. The problems vary – Turkey, Greece, the Balkan nations, Germany and the Scandinavian countries all face a variety of issues that are not common to all the nations.
The conversation will be held in the Cotilla Gallery (2nd Floor) in the Alvin Sherman Library on NSU’s Fort Lauderdale/Davie campus. The event is free and open to the public.
