The border between Mexico and the United States, and the southern border of the European Union in the Mediterranean are two of the most important border zones crossed by migrants from developing countries in their efforts to reach the global north. The phenomenon of human mobility at these geo-politically charged nexus points presents many of the key issues being negotiated by the Member States of the United Nations in an effort to agree a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration in 2018.
On 22 May 2018 (10:00am – 13:00pm CEST) the United Nations University Institute on Globalization, Culture and Mobility (UNU-GCM), in collaboration with the National Autonomous University of Mexico’s (UNAM) Seminar on Studies on Internal Displacement, Migration, Exile and Repatriation (SUDIMER) will organize a dialogue that offers a comparative analysis of these two global border regions to reflect on the challenges of human mobility present in both.
The dialogue will be structured as a round table discussion involving the participation of expert panelists from Latin America and Europe, with an agile and dynamic debate modality. It will be held in both English and Spanish, with no simultaneous translation available.
The updated programme of the event is available here.
