Today more than 60 million persons worldwide have been forcibly displaced from their homes, the highest number in recorded history. Images of desperate refugee flows fill our media every day. This major humanitarian crisis is set to escalate further in 2016.

Join us for a Warburg Program panel discussion featuring experts who will explore answers to some of the key questions surrounding the crisis: What is driving this displacement? Where are the displaced going? What are host governments doing and how is the international community handling this crisis?
