The Informing Migration Policy: International Experience and Evidence Conference will bring together experts at Carleton University and other universities in Canada along with experts in government and the NGO community to look at issues related to the politics and policy of migration. We have a diverse interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary program of research on the factors that affect the political discourse related to international migration and support and/or hinder the way individuals navigate different international migration pathways.

The list of topics identified to be of particular interest are:

  1. Canadian Immigration and Refugee Policy and Politics
  2. Development and Implementation of Global Refugee Policy
  3. Selection, Recruitment and Retention of Economic Immigrants
  4. Immigrant Economic Outcomes
  5. Immigrant Health Data: Outcomes, Services and Mobility
  6. Immigrant Settlement: Education and Technology

Our goal is to share insights and stimulate research partnerships that will ultimately lead to transformative changes in international migration policies and programs and to more positive and constructive political debates related to immigration and border issues.
