Asylum Seekers: A Story of Civil and Human Rights
The Lipman Center’s new director, Robe Imbriano, welcomes you to a conversation and presentation about the civil and human rights of asylum seekers. What’s missing from the national conversation about asylum seekers, and how can we as journalists better cover these issues?
- Elora Mukherjee, director of the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic at Columbia Law School, who works with asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border
- Max Siegelbaum, co-founder and senior reporter, Documented, and a 2016 graduate of the Stabile Center at CJS, who covers immigration and the migrant community in New York
- Sarah Stillman, a former MacArthur Fellow and staff writer for the New Yorker, and adviser of Columbia’s Global Migration Project, who covers asylum seekers from a global and national perspective
- Robe Imbriano, Director, Ira A. Lipman Center for Journalism and Civil and Human Rights, and the Ira A. Lipman Associate Professor of Journalism
This event is sponsored by the Ira A. Lipman Center for Journalism and Civil and Human Rights at Columbia University.
