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 Michele Garnett McKenzie serves on the senior leadership team at The Advocates for Human Rights as well as the national leadership team of the Immigration Advocates Network. A graduate of the U of M’s Law School, she also teaches the Immigration Education and Outreach Externship for the U of M Law School’s Center for New Americans.
