This seminar will focus on journalism and the migration crisis, as the U.S. reconsiders immigration policy and refugee resettlement. At the same time, America's closest ally pursues a dramatically different policy; Canada has the highest immigration rates per capita in the world, three times higher than the U.S. This course will report on immigration and refugee policy and practice across borders, with a focus on the conflict between national security, international responsibility, and America and Canada's historical roles in resettlement. Trips to Canada and Connecticut with give students opportunities to report from the field.
