Event description: 

Immigration policy has made headlines in recent months, with one side arguing that globalization and immigration threaten the domestic economy and national security and the other arguing just the opposite. What light can economics, law, and political science shed on this debate? How does this political moment and policy debate relate to the themes and topics covered in the State & Society course? Speakers include Michael Clemens, Center for Global Development and Harold Koh, Yale Law School.

Moderated by Mushfiq Mobarak, Professor of Economics, Yale School of Management.
