LMRG Seminar w/ Andrew Geddes: Repertoires of Migration Governance

About this Event

Repertoires of Migration Governance in Southeast Asia and South America

by Andrew Geddes, Professor of Migration Studies and Director of the Migration Policy Centre at the European University Institute, Florence

Abstract

This presentation explores the drivers of migration governance in Southeast Asia and South America. Drawing from extensive research and interviews as part of the European Research Council funded MIGPROSP project, it will analyse how key actors in migration governance systems in both these regions understand the causes and effects of migration as well as key risks and uncertainties associated with it. It will then explore how and with what effects these judgements and assessments then inform actions.
