Venue: Institute for European Studies (Pleinlaan 5, first floor, Voltaire room)

Guest Speaker: Prof. Martin Geiger, Carleton University, Ottawa

The transformation of migration politics and the emergence of ‘migration management’ – a new leitmotif and ideology in migration governance –  currently also dominates the discussions of a UN global compact on migration. But what exactly is the role of inter-state and private actors in migration management?

In this policy forum, Martin Geiger will discuss the increasing relevance of these actors in migration managment. Drawing on field research in multiple locations, including Southern and Eastern Europe and North America, he will examine the activities and mechanisms under the umbrella of migration management. He will also address implications for migrants and their families, societies and the international state system, followed by an open discussion.
