Extrait de la présentation en ligne :
« Migration and mobility are age-old phenomena but its nature, volume, direction, causes, and consequence are being radically transformed and shaped by various processes of globalization. As a multi-dimensional phenomenon, migration does not only bring enormous benefits to sending countries in the form of remittances and knowledge and skills transfer, it also benefits receiving countries through the processes of access to cheap labour and exposure to cultural diversity. In recent times, migration has also become more of a security issue especially in advanced industrialized countries in the wake of what is perceived as growing threats of terrorism. In addition, receiving countries now have to confront the challenges of illegal immigration, and growing xenophobic tensions. But there are unique windows of opportunity to make migration a triple win situation for all countries and the migrants themselves. This requires intensification of lesson drawing, knowledge sharing, and purposive interactions among all stakeholders across the global divide. »
