On Friday, March 1st, 2019 WRESL members hosted a wonderful lecture and dinner discussion event in the GEC!
Susanne Dieper, Director of Programs and Grants at the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS) at Johns Hopkins University in Washington, D.C., joined us to discuss the AICGS project called “Integration: Made in Germany.” The AICGS website has more details about this project. Round-table discussions followed the talk. Discussion facilitators did a marvelous job keeping conversations going relevant to the following topics:
US-German Migration Politics, Migration Lessons Learned Across Nations, The Ethics and Morality of Migration, Activism and Volunteering related to Migration, Korean Guest Workers in Germany, The Economics of Migration Policy, Education and Migration, Migration in Historical Perspective, Immigration in Geographic Perspective, and Multilateral Organizations and Immigration. Many thanks to the professors and graduate students who served as discussion facilitators.
