The politics of people movement is a defining feature of the 21st century, with profound ramifications for every country in the Asia Pacific region, including Australia.
You are invited for the launch of People Movement, a collection of expert essays on the challenges and opportunities of migration in the Asia Pacific.
This collection examines many of the region’s most troubling situations of people on the move while giving considered attention to the opportunities for better national and regional responses.
Australia’s conversation about migrants and refugees is too often defined in the narrow terms of economic self-interests, security threats and humanitarian obligations.
Fresh ideas are desperately needed if Australia is to make a constructive contribution across the Asia Pacific over the decades ahead.
Join Professor Michael Wesley, Dean of ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, experts from across the College and guest speaker Elaine Pearson, Director of Human Rights Watch, for an evening of discussion and inquiry.
