A talk by Hélène Pellerin, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Ottawa.
Co-Sponsor: School of Political Studies, University of Ottawa.
Registration is not required. This event will be in French.
Professor Pellerin‘s research focuses on the governance of migration, including regional and global coordination efforts to regulate migration (e.g., “Vers un nouvel ordre migratoire mondial,” Revue canadienne de science politique, June 2003) and the relationship between governance methods and actual migration patterns, migrants’ rights, and economic restructuring (e.g., “Economic Integration and Security: New Key Factors in Managing International Migration,” Choices, July 2004). She is also co-editor of a new volume, Governing International Labour Migration (2008). In this talk, she will examine the ways in which migration policies are being redefined in the industrialized world, the reasons for these changes, and the challenges they represent.
This event is part of the CIPS Study Group on Global Governance.
