Global Immigration Symposium
"When Justice Migrates: How Mobility Across Borders Reconfigures Rights, Equity, and Belonging"
This workshop brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars broadly concerned with questions of justice in an unevenly mobile world. In the face of polarized political discourse and widespread anti-immigrant sentiment, politicians and partisans across diverse national contexts have decried "out-of-control immigration" and called for heightened restrictions to resolve perceived "crises at the border." Hostility to variously defined "others" traverses the political spectrum within liberal democracies and it bridges democratic and autocratic regimes. These global trends have deep consequences for rights, equity, and belonging, and they require analytic and normative interventions by scholars working across disciplinary boundaries.

About the Center
The Milt and Judi Stewart Center on the Global Legal Profession is focused on the unprecedented challenges lawyers are facing around the world and developing research and training materials to assist current and future attorneys in their understanding of international legal systems. The Center has a three-part mission: to engage in research that advances knowledge about the global legal profession; engage with, and learn from, legal professionals in different jurisdictions with a particular focus on the Global South; and build global partnerships with other law schools to enhance the impact of the profession throughout the world. By finding common ground, legal advocates from across the world will discover new ways of communicating and collaborating, essentially using legal practices as a new international language.
