    The war games of modern geopolitics have initiated a humanitarian crisis that defines our times. With renewed emphasis on borders and what they mean, how are refugees changing our understanding of the nation, of borders, and of ourselves? This Talk will explore the converging worlds of human rights, global security, and high-stakes diplomacy. Together, we’ll confront essential questions about global ethics and offer a new approach for policymakers and peace advocates.
