Conference: Crisis of Governability? The politics of migration governance in Latin America & Europe

International Conference, Buenos Aires, Argentina

The conference seeks to analyse the state of governability of immigration in Europe and Latin America by examining the variety and the complexity of the components of the politics of migration governance. A comparative angle between the two regions will provide us with deeper insights about the dynamics of migration governance, and its underlying politics. To do so, it will gather academics, experts and policy makers from both regions. The objective is to foster a research agenda that goes beyond macro trends of migration policies, creating a space of dialogue and exchange between these regions.

The event will gather academics, experts and policy makers from both regions to discuss this pressing issue. The conference aims to foster a research agenda that goes beyond the identification of macro trends of migration policies focusing instead on bigger questions of migration politics, governance and governability; creating a space of dialogue and exchange between these regions (see CfP below).

The conference is supported by the EU-LAC foundation and jointly organized by the Migration Policy Centre, the Regional Office of the IOM in South America, and the University of Lanus.

Participation is free of charge. Paper Proposals (abstracts of max. 350 words) are to be submitted through this link until May 31 2018 (12 am CET).
The conference will be held in English and Spanish
