International scholars will meet at Indiana University in April to discuss the relationships between globalization and migration.
The IU Maurer School of Law and its Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies are sponsoring the symposium, "Globalization and Migration," which will focus on forms of displacement not usually considered under the rubric of migration, according to Alfred C. Aman Jr., professor of law and faculty editor of the Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies, which he co-founded.
"The symposium will address migration issues such as deportation, sex trafficking, asylum and adoption, along with novel approaches to law related to migration in these and other areas," Aman said in a release. "We expect that this international and interdisciplinary conference will break substantial new ground, both thematically and theoretically."
The two-day event begins at noon April 7 in the law school. The papers presented at the event will later be published in the journal in a special issue. Additional information is available on the symposium’s website.
