Quarterly “Luncheon” Meeting: Immigration and Refugee Policy

Topic: Immigration and Refugee Policy


Guest speaker, Galya Ben-Arieh, J.D. ,Ph.D., is a professor in the Political Science Department at Northwestern University and an international expert in refugee and forced migration studies. She has worked for over 20 years bringing her expertise as an academic and lawyer to broaden our understandings of the rights and processes of refugee protection and the role of law in settlement and inclusion in host societies.

In 2018 she founded COMPASS – Community Partnerships for Settlement Strategies, a public charity that works to design effective approaches in support of the long-term wellbeing of refugees and asylees. COMPASS does this through direct support and collaboration with community partners, employers and local government, providing resources and opportunities that support the attainment of education and skills training into living wage career pathways.

BPB hosts educational luncheons listening to refugee stories and “knowledge experts” speak on immigration and refugee programs.
