Dartmouth Panelists Discuss Refugee Crisis (‘Valley News’)



Dartmouth panelists “sketched a sobering view of the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe, which they said is larger in scale and reaches further than many might imagine,” reports the Valley News.

The newspaper reported on a panel discussion—“Humanity Uprooted: The Brutal Causes and Devastating Consequences of Europe’s Refugee Crisis”—sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Dean of the College, the Leslie Center for the Humanities, and the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth.
