ComingsNGoings: Immigration Event
February 8, 2016, 10am (Eastern). Migration Policy Institute (MPI will present a US/Europe webinar on "Scaling Up Resettlement: The Role of Private Sponsorship Programmes in Addressing the Refugee Crisis." In this webinar MPI speakers will discuss their analysis on how private sponsorship programmes for refugees could possibly enhance outcomes and spread costs. Speakers will also delve into key questions and challenges that should be considered in implementation, including who would be eligible to sponsor refugees, what would sponsors' responsibilities entail, who could be sponsored, and how would applicants be chosen, what entitlements and status might sponsored refugees get, and more political questions as to whether such initiatives merely represent a divestment of government responsibilities onto an overstretched volunteer sector.
