Each Tuesday, the Conflict, Security, and Development Series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches, and highlight recent innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in conflict and post-conflict situations. 

Tom Syring, the 2020 American-Scandinavian Foundation Visiting Lecturer in the Rule of Law and Forced Migration, Chairman of the Human Rights Research
, and a Visiting Scholar at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg. He has particularly published and lectured on issues at the intersection of international humanitarian law, international criminal law, refugee law and human rights.

This talk aims to provide a legal backdrop to the convoluted challenges of forced migration and discuss some of the root causes of conflict and inherent drivers of migration and refugee
flows underlying current global crises.

This series is co-presented by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU School of Law, the Center for Global Affairs at NYU’s School for Professional Studies, The Program in International Relations at NYU’s GSAS, the Robert L. Bernstein Institute for Human Rights, and the Office of International Programs at NYU Wagner. In addition, Tom Syring’s appearance at NYU is sponsored by the American-Scandinavian Foundation.
