Week 4 The Global Migrant Crisis Can We Stop Migration?
As millions of people are forced from their homeland as a result of war, poverty, disaster, and much more, many countries are facing the necessity of caring for a large influx of people. As countries can greatly benefit from migration, it is also unquestionable that the pressure placed on governments is enormous. Can we stop migration or should we face it as a reality and do our best to handle it? We will briefly review the international compacts on migration, Panama ?s experience as a transit country, and Mexico ?s experience with migrants. Guest Luis Videgaray (Director, MIT AI Policy for the World Project and Former Minister of Foreign Affairs and Minister of Finance and Public Credit, Mexico)
