CALL FOR PAPERS
CROSSING BORDERS IN A TROUBLED WORLD: A YOUTH CONFERENCE ON TRANSNATIONAL MIGRATION

31st MARCH-1st APRIL 2016
Faculty of Law, NUS Bukit Timah Campus


Submission Deadline for abstracts: 15 January 2016

The Centre for Asian Legal Studies (CALS) is pleased to solicit proposals for participation in a Youth Conference entitled 'CROSSING BORDERS IN A TROUBLED WORLD: A YOUTH CONFERENCE ON TRANSNATIONAL MIGRATION'. The conference will be held at NUS in Singapore on 31STMarch-1st April 2016.

Whether due to globalization or the devastation of wars, migration has been a major phenomenon world-wide, especially in the post-world war era. The 2015 Migration and Development Brief by World Bank observes that one out of seven persons (or one billion people) in the world is an international or internal migrant. Today, migration is a major factor shaping economic policies, laws, cultural values, and social structures. Rapidly increasing migration has also increased the incidences of human trafficking and people smuggling. Besides poverty and the allure of better economic opportunities, war, civil unrest and natural disasters are also driving millions into becoming refugees. It is a troubled world that we live in, and migration is the choice that many have made to seek a better life outside the confines of where they were born and (often) raised. Migration therefore implicates not only domestic laws, but also trans-boundary relations and international law. It has also become an impetus for new global rights movements and alliances, as well as shed new light on the relationship between the state and individuals. Unsurprisingly, with the new power of social media and other platforms, youths have been particularly outspoken about their concerns over migration and rights of migrants.
