Amid the global refugee and migration crisis, how is New York City shaping its immigration strategy and policies? In this special briefing, New York City immigration commissionerNisha Agarwal—herself the daughter of Indian immigrants—explains the city's approach.

Nisha Agarwal has been commissioner of the NYC Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs since March 2014. A public interest lawyer, she previously worked with Judge Robert A. Katzmann, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, to establish the Immigrant Justice Corps, a non-profit that recruits recent law school graduates and partners them with non-profit legal services providers to offer legal representation to undocumented immigrants.

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Kavitha Rajagopalan will lead the conversation.

Hungary and the Values Test

In the wake of the Hungarian parliament's vote to allow the executive to rule by decree, Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev reflects on the call by some to expel Hungary from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization--on the grounds that the country no longer upholds the liberal-democratic values that should form the basis of the security association.

The Coronavirus Pandemic & International Relations, with Nikolas Gvosdev

With the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting all aspects of daily life around the world, what will be the effect on international relations? Will it increase cooperation among nations, or will it lead to more conflict and competition? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev and host Alex Woodson discuss these scenarios and also touch on how the virus has affected the Democratic primary, in which Joe Biden now has a commanding lead.

Does COVID-19 Change International Relations?

Does a global pandemic change the nature of international affairs? Is it likely to foster international cooperation, or will it promote disintegrative tendencies within the global system? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev shares his thoughts.
