The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs will co-host the discussion, “Humanitarian Action in a Time of Unprecedented Needs—Global Challenges and the Role of the United States,” featuring Richard Albright, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) at the U.S. Department of State.

In conversation with Jackson Senior Fellow Ambassador Robert Ford, Albright will address US policymaking on global refugee issues.

As a senior U.S. diplomat, Albright advanced a wide range of U.S. economic policy, development, humanitarian, and security priorities and programs across assignments in the Middle East, South Asia, Europe and Washington. He helped develop whole-of-government policy approaches and innovative practices in the design and delivery of programs to provide protection, assistance, advocacy, and solutions for the world’s most vulnerable people.

The Yale MacMillan Center’s Program on Refugees, Forced Displacement and Humanitarian Responses will co-host the event, which will be held in the GM Room, Horchow Hall. It is open members of the Yale campus community with Yale ID. Please register.
