Dr. Keith Watenpaugh is Professor of the Modern Middle East at UC Davis and the Director of the UC Davis Human Rights Initiative.  His work in studying refugees took him to Istanbul, Turkey in June and then to camps along the Turkey/Syrian Border.  He’s just back from the trip and will describe what he witnessed and learned.
