The Brown Bag Sessions
Gladys McCormick - Immigration in Trump’s America: Perspectives from Policy and Pedagogy
Professor McCormick will provide an overview of the three executive orders on immigration that President Trump signed this past January and discuss their roll out and consequences. She focuses on how they’ve targeted specific groups of individuals, most notably Deferred Action Childhood Arrival (DACA) students and Mexican immigrants in general, as well as their overall costs of implementation and effect on US-Mexico relations. She will comment on facilitating discussion of these issues inside and outside academic circles as well as how to tack them onto competing notions of citizenship.
Corri Zoli - Gaps in Protection at the Intersection of Law and International Migration
In her talk, Professor Zoli explores built-in legal tensions in the 1951 Refugee Convention and 1967 Refugee Protocol, including security exceptions to refugee rights. Such gaps in protections are increasingly visible across a wide array of cases, from the European refugee crisis, to Dreamers in the United States. She will examine how international law, even with its tensions and limitations, suggests possible avenues and solutions.
