Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Oct 12, 2016

Professors Leticia Saucedo, Brian Soucek, Rose Cuison Villazor, and I just wrapped-up our participation in the Migration and Asylum Symposium 2016 hosted by the University of Geneva. UC Davis, along with the University of Geneva and the League of European Research Universities, was a co-organizer of the event.
