The news is filled with heartbreaking stories and photos documenting the catastrophic displacement of nearly 12 million Syrians. As desperate refugees stream into Europe, the world finally is paying attention to the human cost of the fighting that has been raging for years.

On Monday, September 21, in Sommer Hall, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health hosted “The Syrian Refugee Crisis: Searching for Solutions.” The symposium probed the causes of the worst asylum crisis since World War II and sought lasting solutions for this and future crises.


Among the speakers and panelists were Anne C. Richard, Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, and several Bloomberg School experts, including Courtland Robinson, Leonard S. Rubenstein and Adam L. Kushner.
