Migration and immigration have become crisis issues in advanced countries. In Europe and the United States, the impact has been deeply felt and the political fallout has manifested itself in the rise of populism and unprecedented electoral outcome; most recently in Italy. The power of these issues is not transient; it is driven by globalization and its by-products. This conference aims to explore this increasingly urgent question and open a conversation about how best to address it. Panels featuring experts from around the world will focus on the impact of migration in Europe, the battle over immigration policy in the United States, and the continuing impact of globalization.
