Report that studies the impact and integration of transnationals in Ukraine's gateway cities.
Loren Landau, Director of the Forced Migration Studies Program at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, sat down with CUSP Program Associate Allison Garland to discuss migration and urban transformation in South Africa. Landau was at the Wilson Center to participate in a major conference on "Transnational Migration to New Regional Centers".
This report draws from the dialogue and seminar papers shared at an April 2011 meeting co-hosted by the Wilson Center and the Fetzer Institute to explore how best to respond to disasters. Highlighting the complex nature of disaster response and exploring ways to overcome the inherent tension between those responding to disasters and the local community, the discussion centered on how to identify the strengths of a community and use technology to better engage the local community and provide effective, sustainable relief.
