Program Overview

Program Description:

George Mason University, in conjunction with Mississippi State University, the University of Zagreb, and the University of Split, is proud to offer a study abroad in the form that explores emerging social issues surrounding the challenges of immigration and refugee crisis. Students who complete the program will receive a Certificate of Completion from the joint sponsoring hosts from the University of Zagreb and the University of Split.
 
Security threats are continually increasing. Per General Michael Hayden, today’s world is more dangerous, complicated, and immediate than ever before. Given the tectonic shifts of globalization and the expansion of democratization, the nexus between security and sociocultural respect and liberty presents a variety of policy and administrative challenges. This societal risk has been further exacerbated by the recent Syrian refugee crisis and ongoing mass migration. With a fundamental ad heightened fear of changing the social and cultural fabric of society, the immigration tidal wave presents a politically charged phenomenon. The purpose of this panel is to investigate the common denominators faced by policy makers and public administrators when those challenges are amplified by the security-based contextual background.
