10/11: Virtual Academic & Policy Symposium: Migration Research, Scholarship, and Policy at a Time of Multiple Crises
The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) will hold its 2020 Academic and Policy Symposium on Tuesday, November 10, 2020. The full agenda and speaker list is now available. This year’s symposium is free to attend and will take place virtually.
- How do and should policy-makers and advocates respond to crises that shape migration dynamics? What strategies are effective in this context?
- How do and should policy-makers and advocates respond to overlapping crises that develop along different timelines — i.e., the immediate crisis of COVID-19, the longer-term economic fall-out, the slowly developing aspects of climate change, as well as sudden environmental crises like increased flooding and stronger monsoons?
- What kind of academic research agenda is needed to understand the complex interactions among these different crises?
- What Executive actions and broader immigration and refugee protection reforms should a new US administration prioritize in its first year?
The symposium is free to attend and will take place virtually. Advance registration is required. To register for the symposium, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/LRQjWqmdVHb4fQyT8.
