Fletcher Ideas Exchanges

The Henry J. Leir Institute, in collaboration with the Edward R. Murrow Center, has regularly hosted Fletcher Ideas Exchanges. These events are public forums that showcase relevant and thought-provoking ideas from the Fletcher community, organized around a common theme. The events demonstrate the Leir Institute’s multidisciplinary approach to migration and human security. 

These events were made possible through grants from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The statements made and views expressed are solely the responsibility of the authors.
