Description:

Please join us for the Global Lunchbox series, a weekly conversational forum hosted by the Weinberg College Center for International and Area Studies featuring work-in-progress by members of the Northwestern community.

Galya Ben-Arieh, Director of the Colloquium on Refugees, Migrants and Statelessness, will discuss the itinerary of this unit within the Weinberg College Center for International and Area Studies. The Colloquium on Refugees, Migrants and Statelessness brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars, practitioners and policy makers in order to contribute to the public understanding of movement across national borders, with the aim of reducing the risk of harm, confronting social disfranchisement, and changing the international community’s response to refugee and migrant needs.

Galya Ben-Arieh dedicates her time as a lawyer, teacher and action researcher to understanding the realities of refugee policy and how we can better fulfill our promise of humanitarian protection. A full Professor of Political Science in the Lecturer Faculty at Northwestern, she teaches courses on refugee policy and constitutionalism. She founded and directed the Center for Forced Migration Studies, which was housed at the Buffett Institute from 2011 until 2018 and is now the Colloquium on Refugees, Migrants and Statelessness and housed within the Weinberg College Center for International and Area Studies. She is co-editor (with Benjamin Lawrance) of Adjudicating Refugee and Asylum Status: The Role of Witness, Expertise, and Testimony (Cambridge University Press, 2014).
