The Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy hosts Russia expert Tom Graham for a frank discussion on US-Russia relations.

A former Jackson School Senior Fellow and Foreign Service officer, Graham is now a managing director at Kissinger Associates, Inc., where he focuses on Russian and Eurasian affairs. He was Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Russia on the National Security Council staff from 2004 to 2007 and Director for Russian Affairs on that staff from 2002 to 2004. From 2001 to 2002, he served as the Associate Director of the Policy Planning Staff of the Department of State. He co-founded the Russian Studies Project at Yale.

Arne Westad, Elihu Professor of History and Global Affairs, and Director of International Security Studies and the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy, will moderate.

PRFDHR Seminar: AI, Digital Identities, Biometrics, Blockchain: How the Use of Technology is Changing Migration Globally, Dr. Raphaela Schweiger

Event time: 
Thursday, October 26, 2023 - 4:00pm to 5:15pm
Location: 
Henry R. Luce Hall LUCE, 203 See map
34 Hillhouse Avenue
New Haven, CT 06511
Speaker/Performer: 
Raphaela Schweiger, Yale University - World Fellow
Event description: 

The seminar led by Dr. Raphaela Schweiger will delve into the profound impacts of digitalization and technological advancements on migration and refugee policies. In a world shaped by rapid technological change, this seminar offers an exploration of the evolving landscape, both globally and in some specific cases in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and North America. Technology has already begun reshaping the experiences of migrants, refugees, and those on the move. From AI-powered virtual psychotherapy in refugee camps to blockchain-based solutions for identity verification, the migration management field is undergoing a profound evolution. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated these digitalization processes, demanding swift policy adaptation. The seminar will investigate the wide-reaching effects of digital connectivity, from online learning platforms empowering refugees to the creation of new information ecosystems in the migration space. AI, biometrics, and blockchain are driving innovations in critical migration areas, from predicting migration patterns to transforming asylum processes. But this transformation isn’t without its challenges. As technology intersects with geopolitical shifts, we must grapple with questions of privacy, data access, and human rights. Vulnerabilities and discrimination in the migration space demand our attention.

Raphaela Schweiger is a 2023 Yale World Fellow and the Director of the Migration Program at the Robert Bosch Stiftung. Her portfolio includes global governance of migration, climate mobility, the future of protection of refugees and migrants, and the intersection between technological change and migration. She also works on the intersection of migration with other global issues, such as climate change, peace and conflict, inequalities, and inclusive societies, and has published widely on these issues. Raphaela is a board member of the Doris Wuppermann Foundation, a German foundation, focusing on supporting youth-led initiatives fostering democracy and civic participation. She holds a PhD from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, a Political Science and Law degree from the University of Munich, an International Studies/Peace and Conflict Studies from the Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main, the Technical University Darmstadt and the University Complutense de Madrid.

About this program
The vast collections of Sir Hans Sloane (1660–1753) were the foundations of three national institutions: the British Library, the British Museum, and the Natural History Museum. A royal physician and natural philosopher of insatiable curiosity who was secretary and president of the Royal Society, Sloane attempted to encompass the world and its knowledge through the creation of an encyclopedic collection to be left to the nation. This talk will briefly examine recent efforts to reconstruct his collections—physically and virtually—with particular reference to his “miscellaneous” catalog, before providing an overview of Sloane’s “paper museum” of one hundred albums of more than 20,000 drawings.

About Kim Sloan
Kim Sloan was the curator of British drawings and watercolors at the British Museum from 1992 to 2020. She is the author of A Noble Art, a study of amateur artists and drawing masters, as well as monographs on Alexander and John Robert Cozens and on J. M. W. Turner. Her exhibitions and publications at the British Museum included The Intimate Portrait (with the Scottish National Portrait Gallery), A New World (also shown at the YCBA), Places of the Mind: British Landscape Watercolors and Drawings, 1850–1950, and Vases and Volcanoes. She edits the Beckford Society’s annual journal. As the principal curator of the Enlightenment Gallery since it opened in 2003, she has been researching Sir Hans Sloane’s collections on and off for the past two decades.

Art in Context
Presented by faculty, staff, student guides, and visiting scholars, these gallery talks focus on a particular work of art in the museum’s collections or special exhibitions through an in-depth look at its style, subject matter, technique, or time period.
