Syrian refugees at Turkey-Syria border...epa04791762 A picture taken from the Turkish side of the border between Turkey and Syria shows Syrian refugees waiting on the Syrian side of the border crossing near Akcakale, Sanliurfa province, south-eastern Turkey, 10 June 2015. More than 320,000 people are likely to have been killed in Syria's civil war, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said on 09 June. The organization said said it had been able to document the deaths of 230,618 people, including 69,494 civilians of whom more than 7,000 were children. The crisis in Syria started in March 2011 with peaceful demonstrations calling for more freedom from the repressive al-Assad regime, but quickly degenerated into violence after deadly crackdowns by security forces.

The subject of The Refugee Crisis is ripe with critical thinking and community building opportunities across many disciplines:

  • Who are the refugees living in our community and attending our classes and where have they come from?
  • What are the root conditions that result in 59.5 displaced people worldwide?
  • What is the relationship between western colonialism and the current refugee situation?
  • What is the ethical/moral obligation of western nations to address the crisis?
  • What historical American values are challenged by our response to the refugee crisis?
  • What is the relation of racism, religious intolerance and Xenophobia to our national response?
  • What effect will global climate change have on the refugee situation?
