This is the June 14, 2019 briefing titled 'Partially Protected? Non-Asylum Protection in the United States and the European Union,' held before the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe. From the opening statement of Nathaniel Hurd: Migration, immigration, and refugee movements are among the most contentious subjects in the United States and Europe among policymakers and publics. The Helsinki Commission's perch on Capitol Hill is an excellent place to explore the legal, policy, and human implications of one aspect--temporary protection for people who have left armed conflict or natural disaster, but do not qualify for asylum. For more than 43 years, this commission of lawmakers from both parties and both chambers has been a place for substantive discussion that puts the human person, especially the vulnerable, at the heart of the conversation.' Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Alex T. Johnson, Jill H. Wilson, Marleine Bastien, Sui Chung, and Catherine Woollard."
