Beyond the Border

Unsettled / Desasosiego

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.


Central American Family Migration - Prof. Cecilia Menjivar, The Sanford School

The Legal Framework - Prof. Evelyn Cruz, Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law

A Look at Disaster Ethics - Prof. Elizabeth Brake, Philosophy

The Response in Phoenix - Cyndi Whitmore, The Restoration Project, Phoenix

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."


Join us at Pima Auditorium on the second floor of Memorial Union at Tempe Campus on September 3 at 12:00.
