The Refugee Crisis

Many are dying in transit and the nations receiving them are being overwhelmed. Join Active Minds as we explore how the migrants and the international community are struggling to cope with these challenges.
Thursday, Oct. 27, 6:45–7:45pm
The various conflicts in the Middle East are both troubling and complex. Recently, the country of Yemen has emerged as another stage upon which sectarian warfare is being played out. At its roots is the animosity between Sunni and Shia Muslims that, in turn, brings the involvement of other regional powers, including Saudi Arabia and Egypt (Sunni) as well as Iran (Shia). Join Active Minds as we seek to understand Yemen’s current situation and broader implications for the region.
