Mass Migration: Where Interests and Values Collide

Mass Migration: Where Interests and Values Collide

Ten Years Hence aims to engage in some structured speculation about the future – specifically the decade just ahead and the world we’re likely to inhabit ten years from now. We’ll do that from a number of perspectives, but all of it will be focused on one question: Is Globalism Dead?

Meet the Speaker: David Robinson

Ambassador David Robinson retired from the United States Senior Foreign Service in 2017. He served as an American diplomat for more than three decades, principally in conflict zones and developing countries, including Afghanistan, Bosnia and El Salvador. Ambassador Robinson is U.S. Ambassador to Guyana (Retired).

As Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration and most recently as Assistant Secretary of State for Conflict and Stabilization Operations, he focused on forced migration and refugee crises and immediate post-conflict stabilization challenges in, among other places, Somalia, Venezuela, and Syria. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1977 and is currently a lecturer at Yale University.

This year marks the 21st anniversary of the Mendoza College of Business signature lecture series, Ten Years Hence. We invite you to join with us to see and hear a variety of experts talk about this year’s topic, framed around a question: “Is Globalism Dead?”

Some of our speakers will say the answer is “yes,” while others will say, “definitely not.” Still others aren’t so sure, offering a qualified, “perhaps.” Friday, April 21, 2023 at 10:40am ET, David Robinson joined us to speak on “Mass Migration: Where Interests and Values Collide.” Experience the series virtually with 75 current Notre Dame students in Jordan Auditorium for a session that promises to be engaging, informative, and fun.

Join us on select Friday mornings throughout the spring semester to learn more about the global economy and a range of related issues such as global health concerns, migration, global governance, and the intersection of public policy and the public good. 


David Robinson, Former Assistant Secretary of State, U.S. Ambassador to Guyana
