Moving People: The Perils and Promise of Nationalism

The 2021-22 Jepson Leadership Forum invites scholars, activists, and experts to discuss the moral, ethical, and legal implications of global migration and asylum. Join us as we explore how leaders and communities navigate the economic, social, and cultural transformations of a world with – and without – borders and walls.

We have posponed the 2020-21 lecture series to the 2021-22 academic year in an effort to keep our students, faculty, staff, and guests as safe as possible. The speakers expected to appear are listed below.
