Symposium on Immigration

Symposium on Immigration:  Who gets in? On what terms? Who gets to decide?

DATE: Tuesday, March 11, 2014
PLACE:  Senate Salon, Student Center
TIME: 6:00 PM (Reception at 5:30 PM)
Immigration continues to be a flashpoint in the public policies of developed countries. As the United States grapples with revising its immigration policies, we convene a distinguished panel of experts to consider possible changes to current policies and what might justify them.
Our distinguished speakers are:

Richard Freeman (Harvard University) : “One World in What Matters: International
Students, Immigration, and the Spread of Knowledge”
Christopher Wellman (University of Washington in St. Louis) : “The Right to Exclude”

Our commentators are:

Andy Altman (GSU)
Barry Hirsch (GSU)
Paula Stephan (GSU)
Madeline Zavodny (Agnes Scott College)
