Regional Perspectives on Migration and Refugees Keynote Address

January 18, 2018
6:00 PM
International Affairs Building, 420 W. 118 St., New York, NY 10027 1512
Please join the Harriman Institute and Columbia Global Policy Initiative for a conference on the transnational issues of migration and forced migration, taking a comparative approach that considers the European, Eurasian, and North American cases. The event will bring migration experts from Russia and the post-Soviet region together with those in the Columbia community and the wider New York area. The objective is to discuss and learn from various experiences, including across regions, as well as across the fields of migration and refugee studies, in order to develop policy recommendations. The full-day conference will include panel discussions on the following themes: security dimensions (including interethnic conflict); economic dimensions (including employment and integration); human rights dimensions; and institutional effectiveness. The keynote address will be delivered by Michael Doyle, Director of the Columbia Global Policy Initiative and University Professor at Columbia University, who is leading the development of the Model International Mobility Convention.
