The Munk School of Global Affairs presents

The Muslim Ban: Trump's First Legal, Political, and Security Crisis 2017

In a recent Executive Order targeting migrants from seven Muslim-majority countries, President Trump has banned all Syrian refugees from entering the United States of America indefinitely, and suspended entry for all refugees, immigrants, dual nationals, and US permanent residents from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days, or longer. After campaigning on a promise to ban all Muslims entering the United States, this Executive Order is the first formal act by the new administration that takes aim at the Muslim community. The legal, political, humanitarian, and security consequences of this “Muslim ban” are far-reaching. What are the short- and long-term implications of the ban? At this exclusive Munk School event, the Islam and Global Affairs Initiative brings together a team of legal and security experts to unpack this urgent question.
