Georgia State University will host a symposium to better understand Immigration Policy and Human Rights. It will take place on June 17.

Some of the subjects addressed:

*"Post 9/11 Backlash Against Immigrants"

*"Immigration as a Human Rights Issue"

* "Immigration and Belonging: Divergent Perspectives on Latinos and Human Rights in the United States”

* “Immigration Detention”

*“Citizenship and Human Rights Challenges in Europe.”

*Immigrants and refugees seeking a better life and fleeing poverty, hunger, civil war and persecution are among society’s most vulnerable groups.

Research endeavors that explain immigration trends, critically evaluate alternatives for policy reform, and compare the effectiveness of efforts to defend immigrants’ human rights are both timely and necessary.

This symposium should be really good. I'm sure it will provide factual information that is credible.
