Consul General Quelle will discuss the unprecedented flow of refugees flowing into Europe, how it affects Germany and other countries, how Germany and Europe have responded to it and what the implications are for the future. An estimated 9 million Syrians have fled their homes since March 2011's civil war began, with 6.5 million displaced within Syria and 3 million fleeing to neighboring countries, with a lesser but substantial number leaving for Europe. Germany pledged to provide more resettlement places than any other European country. Hear how Germany and Europe have responded to this crisis and what it means for international politics and U.S. refugee and asylum policy.
