Global Migration Governance

Thursday, March 10, 2011, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
The New School
80 Fifth Avenue, room 802

In the context of the growing politicization of migration, a debate has emerged within policy and academia on the need to develop global governance on migration to facilitate better inter-state cooperation. However, this debate is taking place in the absence of a clear understanding of what global migration governance actually is and the basis on which we can make judgments about what “better” global migration governance might look like. Alexander Betts (Oxford University), Michele Klein-Solomon (International Organization for Migration) and Joseph Chamie (Center for Migration Studies) examine these issues in the context of the recently published book Global Migration Governance. Moderated by Alexandra Délano, The New School.

This event is co-sponsored by The New School’s Global Studies program and the International Center for Migration, Ethnicity, and Citizenship.
