International Seminar on Mixed Migration in Southeast and East Asia
June 21, 2017 – 22, 2017; (All Day)
The 'International Seminar on Mixed Migration in Southeast and East Asia', organized by UN-ACT and Mahidol University, discusses a series of papers presented by around 30 panelists representing academia, government, civilsociety and the UN from around the world, in 7 thematic sessions on various aspects of mixed migration in the region.
The response has been enormous and the 100 available seats filled up in no time, so we have had to close the registration window. We may still be able to acccommodate a few people, but please inquire about availability at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The good news is, however, that we are making a professional livestreamavailable for the event here on our Facebook page. You can watch the entire program live and engage in the discussions by raising questions or thoughts in the comment box, which we will be sure to pass on to the discussants at the event. You can also engage in the event on Twitter via mixedmigration.
For more information on the program including the agenda and abstracts of the papers to be presented and discussed, visit our event site.
Accompanying the proceedings will be the exhibition ‘Behind Tin Walls’ by Thai photographer Visarut Sankham that documents the lives of migrant workers in Bangkok who reside in temporary, tin-walled structures as they build the city’s skyline. The showing has been made possible with financial support from the International Labour Organization's Triangle in ASEAN program.
We are excited about next week's event and look forward to having you all join. Please share this announcement widely among your networks!
