The symposium convened by ASAP, Global Justice Now and Club de Madrid aims to critically analyse the structural shifts and reorientation in attitudes and rhetoric that need to be taken regarding migration related policy decision making. The debate will use evidenced based research to challenge the underpinning assumptions currently driving migration related decision making processes.
Convening thought leaders in policy, research and civil society this discussion series challenges the wider framing of austerity politics and asks the question, where do we go from here?
This colloquium will be the first in a series and will explore the ways in which policy makers and other influential actors can shift negative attitudes towards migrants and migration, and identify what positive citizenship looks like in this context. The colloquium will be convened to determine what effective inclusive economy, migration policy and processes should look like in a shared societies context. We define an inclusive economy as one which there is better systems and opportunities for more broadly shared prosperity especially for those facing the greatest barriers to advancing their well-being.
