On February 5, 2016, the Foreign Policy program at The Brookings Institution hosted the American Academy in Berlin for the 2016 Richard C. Holbrooke Forum for a two-part public event focusing on the global refugee crisis. This public event took place at the close of a four-day workshop entitled “The Global Migration Crisis: Its Challenges to the United States, Europe and Global Order,” with a select group of legal and policy experts from around the world. The first public discussion, “Moral Dimensions,” was introduced by Martin Indyk, Executive Vice President of the The Brookings Institution, and featured a discussion with Michael Ignatieff, co-chair of the Richard C. Holbrooke Forum and the Edward R. Murrow Professor of Practice at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government; and Leon Wieseltier, the Isaiah Berlin Senior Fellow in Culture and Policy at the The Brookings Institution. Panel two, “Practical Solutions,” also moderated by Martin Indyk, included Beth Ferris, a research professor at Georgetown University and Nonresident Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution; Bruce J. Katz, Centennial Scholar at The Brookings Institution; and Tamara Cofman Wittes, the Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for Middle East Policy at The Brookings Institution.
