CPS Research Talk 8


Unprecedented numbers of people are on the move around the globe and with climate change, COVID, and increasing conflict, these numbers will greatly increase by 2050. While macro-level solutions are desperately essential, we need to understand the experiences faced by migrants and forcibly displaced persons. In this talk, Professor Simmons will draw upon his decades of experience studying migration and human rights in several contexts around the globe. Of particular focus will be the surprising resilience and posttraumatic growth that migrants often exhibit. He will describe how these ideas connect to his current research with faculty from North South University on the forcibly displaced Rohingya in Bangladesh.
