T. Alexander Aleinikoff, United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees

Kathleen Newland, Director, MPI’s Migrants, Migration, and Development Program

More than two and a half years of violent conflict in Syria have left between one-quarter and one-third of the Syrian population displaced internally or seeking refuge abroad, with many still departing the country.  UN Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees T. Alexander Aleinikoff will join Kathleen Newland, who directs MPI's refugee protection work, for a discussion on what is now considered one of the biggest humanitarian emergencies in a generation. In addition to discussing the key concerns UNHCR has identified in the Syrian crisis and the regional and international responses, Mr. Aleinikoff and Ms. Newland will discuss some of UNHCR’s other priorities and areas of action.
