The Norris and Margery Bendetson EPIIC International Symposium

Date & Time March 7, 2019 4:00pm
ASEAN Auditorium and 51 Winthrop St

The 2019 EPIIC International Symposium will be three days of what we hope will be far-reaching discussions on issues critical to understanding the pressing challenges facing countries and migrants, from the tensions between state sovereignty and global migration to the policies that allow the continued existence of slavery and human trafficking, from the impacts of South-to-South migration to the vanguard role cities play in migration, from the securitization of migration to the roles gender and climate change are playing and will play in future policies.

The Boston Globe made this assessment of past EPIIC Symposia:

“At a time when the national discourse seems forever reduced to its lowest common denominator…to sound bites and slogans…EPIIC is a refreshing antidote. Far from looking to simplify the world, the symposium aims to teach students to view life in a way that respects complex human systems.”
