Migration Governance in the Americas: A Shared Vision


Migration Governance in the Americas: A Shared Vision

December 12-13, 2024

National Press CluB

529 14th St NW, Washington, DC 20045, United States

Across the Americas substantial and spontaneous migration persists thus resulting in increased and varied challenges for policy-makers and civil society. Across the Americas there are several bilateral/binational migration agreements on such issues as temporary labour mobility, international students, border security, asylum governance, refugee resettlement, credential recognition and others. But divergent national interests and domestic political considerations have made it increasingly difficult to secure multi-nation cooperation on migration between immigrant sending and receiving countries.  It is nonetheless imperative to identify the converging or shared elements of a broader Americas vision if we’re to effectively meet the many and varied challenges ahead. With a focus on the best means for fostering cooperation on migration across the Americas this edition of Metropolis Americas invites policy-makers, researchers and civil society to submit proposals for workshops and round tables on the following topics.
