Refugee Crisis in Europe – The Challenges and Opportunities of Migration

Immigration is one of the most significant issues of our times. More than 1m refugees and migrants crossed into Europe in 2015, sparking a crisis as European states struggled to cope with this influx. The topic is equally important in the U.S., where it is a prominent issue in the 2016 U.S. elections. With this program we aim to address a key issue of the ongoing crisis and the integration of refugees into the labor markets in the U.S. and Germany. We will highlight the different approaches of the two countries as well as the opportunities and challenges involved.
