The Global Governance of International Migration: What Next?
The regulation of international migration and migrant rights are among the most contested public policy issues around the world. In 2013-14 a series of high-level policy meetings (including the High-Level Dialogue on Migration and Development in New York – http://bit.ly/UNDESA-dialogue – and the Global Forum on Migration and Development in Stockholm – http://www.gfmd.org/en/) will debate the global governance of migration, migrant rights and development.
Do we need more global governance of international migration? If so, why and what should it aim to achieve? How, if at all, should international migration be integrated in the post-2015 development agenda?
Join us for a panel discussion on Friday 29th November at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, and take part in the debate. This event is led and hosted by Kellogg College (http://www.kellogg.ox.ac.uk/) and jointly sponsored with COMPAS (http://www.compas.ox.ac.uk), RSC (http://www.rsc.ox.ac.uk) and IMI (http://www.imi.ox.ac.uk).
