This timely episode of CMSOnAir features an interview with Linda Rabben, Associate Research Professor at the University of Maryland, on the refuge and protection of migrants and refugees – also known as ‘sanctuary.’ Professor Rabben traces sanctuary back to its faith traditions and examines its central role in past and present movements that sought to welcome, support, shelter and advocate for vulnerable populations. Her research has just been released in a second edition of her book, Sanctuary and Asylum: A Social and Political History (University of Washington Press 2016).
Susan F. Martin, Donald G. Herzberg Professor Emeritus in International Migration at Georgetown University, discusses her paper, “New Models of International Agreement for Refugee Protection.”
