Stanford U.S.-Russia Forum 2017-18

SURF is a platform for Russian and American university students to work together on some of the most important issues our nations face today. Participants travel to Russia for a five-day conference in the fall, conduct collaborative research with their working group peers over the academic year, and ultimately present their work at a capstone conference at Stanford University in the spring.

Driven out by civil war and terror and attracted by the promise of a better life, huge numbers of people have fled the Middle East and Africa, risking their lives along the way. More than one million refugees poured into Europe in 2016, sparking a crisis of global proportions as countries struggled to cope with the influx and creating divisions in the EU over how best to deal with genuine refugees and asylum seekers as opposed to economic migrants.
