2nd Annual International Migration Conference: “Food (In)Security and Migrants on the Move”

October 27 @ 8:15 am - October 28 @ 1:00 pm

The International Institute of Migration and Development (IIMAD) and the MiFOOD Network of the Hungry Cities Partnership (HCP) in partnership with the Balsillie School of International Affairs and the International Migration Research Centre (IMRC) are jointly hosting an International Migration Conference to discuss the highly topical issue of the relationship between food insecurity and international and internal migration. The program will address four main themes: (a) food security precarity of mobile populations during COVID-19 in Asia and Africa; (b) the food security challenges confronting forced migrants (asylum-seekers and refugees) in the Global South; (c) the migrant food environment in cities of the South; and (d) rural-urban linkages and food security in China and Africa.  The Conference features presentations and case studies from a wide variety of locales by leading international scholars and experts on migration and food security.  The Conference also features Professor Daniel Tevera of the University of the Western Cape, South Africa and Professor Kavita Datta of the Queen Mary University of London.
