Migration, Mobilities, and Social Politics2020-03-26T16:01:48-04:00

Access to mobility is a critical contemporary issue: while the number of international migrants is higher than ever before, states are creating more barriers to mobility for much of the world’s population, and inequality within and between states is increasing. The Migration, Mobilities, and Social Politics (MMSP) cluster brings together a dynamic interdisciplinary group of faculty and students to critically examine contemporary challenges in the governance of migration and ‘the social’. The MMSP cluster is anchored around the following core priority areas: human rights and citizenship, global social policy and protection, diaspora and transnationalism, and territory and identity. We aim to generate innovative research collaboration and dissemination opportunities within and beyond the Balsillie School of International Affairs in order to develop theory and knowledge, and inform policymaking and public debate. More broadly, the group fosters dialogue and scholarship to improve conditions for all populations on the move.

For more information, contact the co-conveners, Suzan Ilcan and Margaret Walton-Roberts.
