Please join CSIL and the Human Rights Institute for a lunch talk given by Felipe González Morales, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants.

An estimated 258 million people live outside their country of origin - including 68+ million displaced due to war, persecution, and environmental disaster. González Morales will discuss rights-based solutions to ensure access to justice for migrants and reflect on the opportunities and challenges facing the global community, based on a report to be presented to the UN General Assembly. The talk will be moderated by Maya Alkateb-Chami, Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute.
