Tomorrow, Jan. 30: Turkey and the Syrian Refugee Crisis


Tuesday, January 30, 2018

“Turkey and the Syrian Refugee Crisis: Responses and Perspectives”

A talk by Zulfukar Aytac Kisman, of Firat University

12:00- 1:00 p.m.
WCC 3019

Since 2011, Turkey has received more than three million Syrian refugees, the largest community of Syrians displaced by the conflict. This has had significant economic, political, security, social, and foreign policy challenges for Turkey. This talk by Dr. Zulfukar Aytac Kisman, of Firat University, will focus on the Syrian refugee crisis from Turkey’s perspective and analyze the Turkish response to the crisis, policies developed, and the need for more rigorous planning. Kisman, who is currently a visiting scholar at Harvard University’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science, will focus on Turkey’s internal dynamics and potential conflict points that will likely continue to shape Turkey’s refugee policy and discuss options going forward.

This event is presented by Islamic Legal Studies Program: Law and Social Change, and co-sponsored by the Harvard Law School Immigration and Refugee Clinic Program.

Lunch will be served

 

Please join us for a talk with Trevor Hoppe, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University at Albany, SUNY, on his book, Punishing Disease: HIV and the criminalization of sickness. The book examines how and why U.S. policymakers and public health systems have adopted coercive and punitive responses to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS. It also looks at how others diseases have been punished throughout history, and cautions against the extension of criminalization to diseases such as hepatitis and meningitis.

This talk is part of the Human Rights Program’s year-long speaker series examining the criminalization of human rights concerning gender, sexuality, and reproduction. The event is co-sponsored by the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law, Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics, the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation, and the Criminal Justice Policy Program.
