"Refugees are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, with the same hopes and ambitions as us—except that a twist of fate has bound their lives to a global refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale." - Khaled Hosseini, author of "The Kite Runner"

Against a backdrop of global displacement, this event offers audience members the opportunity to hear expert insight and a personal narrative of the refugee experience, offering a rare insight into the challenges they've overcome, the dreams they continue to pursue, and the realities that are faced in the immigration process. By delving into the intricate tapestry of resilience that threads through the lives of refugees, we seek to foster understanding and meaningful conversations that transcend borders.

Join the World Affairs Council with the NH Fulbright Association, with our speaker Jeffrey Thielman, President and CEO of the International Institute of New England for an event on discussing U.S refugee policy and first-hand accounts of what it means to be a refugee in the United States. 

This is part two of three in our Fall T. William & Patricia Ayers Global Tipping Points Series - "Immigration Policy & the Stories Behind it" where we unravel the complex interplay between policies and the lived experiences of migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers, shedding light on the challenges they face and the resilience they embody. From the corridors of power to the journeys of those seeking a new home, this event series uncovers the inspiring stories that remind us of the shared humanity that binds us all, transcending borders and shaping the discourse of our time.
