International Seminar on Mixed Migration on 21-22 June 2017
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.
