Global Governance of International Migration

This project brings together scholars from the IMRC and the Balsillie School of International Affairs to connect the growing body of empirical research with policy and governance planning and frameworks, and to formulate and recommend improved models for the global governance of migration with an eye to human security and migrant rights. Researchers aim to map the contemporary myriad of movers and managers that characterize the global governance of migration. Specific attention is given to understanding how this emerging global governance edifice intersects with Canadian policy frameworks and objectives.
