Event description: 

The Jackson Institute and the Yale Law School Center for Global Legal Challenges will co-host the discussion, “Global Migration and Movement Across Borders,” featuring: Monette Zard, Allan Rosenfield Associate Professor of Forced Migration and Health, Director of the Forced Migration and Health Program, Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health; and Demetrios G. Papademetriou, Distinguished Transatlantic Fellow, co-Founder, and President Emeritus, Migration Policy Institute.
Cristina Rodriguez, the Leighton Homer Surbeck Professor of Law at Yale Law School, will moderate the discussion. 
The talk is part of a new virtual discussion series on COVID and the Global Order. 

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic has cost hundreds of thousands of lives. In the process, it has placed new stresses on an already fragile global order. In the early days of the pandemic, the failure of the World Health Organization to stem the spread of the virus led many to question the efficacy of global institutions to address global threats. Many nations tried to prevent the spread of the virus by shutting their borders to travel. The failure of a coherent global response has laid bare how much global institutions had come to rely on a United States that, in this instance, abdicated its role as the world’s indispensable nation. This series will ask how the coronavirus pandemic has affected the global order and whether these effects will last long after the pandemic itself is finally over.  
The discussion is open to the public, but registration is required.
