Clandestine Migration Routes and Human Insecurity

Saturday, May 17 –

McKinney Conference Room

The workshop Clandestine Migration Routes and Human Insecurity will be held on May 17-18, 2014 at the Watson Institute for International Studies. In a cross-regional, comparative discussion, scholars with fieldwork experiences from around the globe will present their work in progress. Much of the scholarship on migration has focused on the border as a site of control and resistance, as well as on migrant experiences in countries of destination. In contrast, this workshop turns its attention to how migrants arrive at the border, to the vehicles, networks, multiple boundary crossings and hardships that constitute the journey to borders. The journey itself is broadly conceived and includes journeys from countries of origin to countries of transit or destination, as well as deportation journeys. We welcome participation of students, faculty and other Brown community members. If you are interested in attending, please contact Noelle Brigden at Noelle_Brigden@brown.edu.
