Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 12:00pm to 1:30pm


Harvard Faculty Club, East Dining Room, 20 Quincy Street, Cambridge

A complex research project in another country is never easy, and recent political and military developments have made it more complicated. Many faculty directing such projects are concerned about such matters as:

  • Travel restrictions
  • Visa and immigration uncertainties
  • Safeguarding devices and the data that are stored on them
  • Working with academic and government colleagues and hosts
  • Business operations: hiring researchers or staff, accessing cash, sending equipment or samples across borders, etc.

If you have questions, come get up-to-date answers and advice, and leads to further resources, from a panel of experts :   

  • Melani Cammett, Professor of Government, author of (among other books) A Political Economy of the Middle East  
  • Jason Corral, Attorney, Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic 
  • Alison Haight, Associate Director, Harvard Global Support Services
  • Maureen Martin, Director of Immigration Services, Harvard International Office
