IGCC Experts


Each year on June 20, we celebrate World Refugee Day—designated by the United Nations to honor refugees around the globe and shine a light on the often difficult circumstances facing those who have been forcibly displaced by conflict, discrimination, and other political and social crises. IGCC asked a small group of its 2021-22 dissertation fellows whose research spans migrant and refugee issues, plus IGCC affiliate Jeannette Money, a professor at UC Davis and migration expert, to share their thoughts on the biggest challenges facing refugees over the next year.
