Beyond the Border

Migrants or Refugees? The crisis in Central America and the response in the United States.
WHEN: 
Wednesday, September 3, 12:00 pm
Pima Auditorium, Memorial Union
Tempe
Free

ASU faculty and members of the community gather to discuss and inform us about how the situation in Central America has contributed to 57,000 children crossing the border alone. Before making decisions that decide the future of these children, we must consider the ethical implications, their past and the current situation.

The Legal Framework - Prof. Evelyn Cruz, Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law
A Look at Disaster Ethics - Prof. Elizabeth Brake, Philosophy

Moderator - Prof. Leah Sarat, Religious Studies
 
We are grateful to Prof. Donna De Cesare at UT Austin for allowing us to use an image from her book "Unsettled / Desasosiego: Children in a World of Gangs."
