The International Seminar on Mixed Migration in Southeast and East Asia took place on 21 and 22 June, and what a success it was!
The venue was packed at maximum capacity on both days as presenters from around the world discussed their papers on various dimensions of mixed migration in the region, divided across 7 thematic sessions.
A few thousand people also joined from afar via an excellent live-stream.
Many of the papers will soon be available on our website. In the meantime, all sessions including presentations and discussions can be watched on demand on our Facebook page at any time.
The submissions will also be considered for publication in the Anti-Trafficking Review (ATR), a peer-reviewed academic journal housed under the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW), in a 2018 issue on the conference’s theme.
The response to our call for registrations for the ‘International Seminar on Mixed Migration in Southeast and East Asia’ has far exceeded our expectations. All 100 seats available at the venue filled up within just 4 days. Against such strong demand, we are making available a professional live-stream via our Facebook page at www.facebook.org/notrafficking.
You can follow all presentations and discussions there, and join in by leaving comments and questions that we will raise for you during the proceedings. You may also watch the full event on demand at a later point, in case you are unavailable on 21-22 June.
Please note that key messages from the seminar will be posted on Twitter at #mixedmigration. Please share widely among interested networks!…
The program for the ‘International Seminar on Mixed Migration in Southeast and East Asia’ organized by UN-ACT and Mahidol University at the Salaya Campus on 21-22 June 2017 is shaping up very well. The draft agenda as of 1 June and abstracts of all accepted papers have been made available on the event’s website: https://sites.google.com/a/mahidol.edu/trafficking-seminar/.
These cover 31 contributions touching upon various dimensions of migration, to be discussed in 7 thematic sessions. Authors have diverse backgrounds including academia, government, civil society or international organizations, and will fly in for the event from almost all parts of the world.
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 ILO Triangle in ASEAN program.
The seminar is now also open for registrations on a first-come, first-served basis via the following link: https://sites.google.com/a/mahidol.edu/trafficking-seminar/registration. Please note that the room capacity is limited to 100 people, so be quick to reserve your place as soon as possible.
For those who cannot attend in person, please keep yourself updated on opportunities to follow the event via live-stream or to watch the recordings after the seminar. More information on this will be shared shortly via the event’s website.…
