An international conference entitled "Migrants and Refugees in a Globalized World: Responsibility and Responses from Universities" is being held in Rome, Italy from November 1-4, 2017. This conference aims to develop a nuanced understanding the refugee and migrant 'crisis' in Europe by facilitating an engaging dialogue between academia and those working in the field or for governmental bodies; discuss varied approaches to providing training and educational opportunities to refugees living in camps; evaluate areas of necessary research focus; create synergies with those working in various levels and sectors for strengthened collaboration on migration-related matters; and to ultimately enhance the level of education on a global scale, including access to higher education for migrants and displaced persons.
