Disability Accommodation?

In 2019, the University launched its first Global Grand Challenge with a focus on migrations -- the unprecedented increase in the movement of people, plants, animals and microbes across the globe. Recent experience with COVID-19 illustrates the importance of a multi-species, multi-disciplinary perspective on migration. Researchers participating in the challenge presented their work in the fields of law, history, ecology, public health, and economics, June 5, 2020, during a Global Grand Challenge webinar.

Panelists: Filiz Garip, professor of sociology and director of the Center for the Study of Economy and Society; Eric Tagliacozzo, the John Stambaugh Professor of History and director of the Comparative Muslim Societies Program; Stephen Yale-Loehr, professor of immigration law practice; and Wendy M. Erb, American Association of University Women Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Center for Conservation Bioacoustics.

The webinar was moderated by Wendy Wolford, Vice Provost for International Affairs, and Rachel Beatty Riedl, Incoming Director of the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies.
