Join the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) for its annual academic and policy symposium on October 9, 2018, scheduled from 8:45am to 4:45pm at the law offices of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP (One New York Plaza / 1 FDR Drive, New York, NY).

Leading scholars, policy experts, and practitioners will examine citizenship in an era of record migration and growing nationalism. The event will open with a keynote address by HE Most Reverend Bernardito C. Auza (Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations and the Organization of American States) on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration. Following this presentation, Irene Bloemraad (University of California, Berkeley) will discuss her International Migration Review paper, “Understanding Membership in a World of Global Migration: (How) Does Citizenship Matter?” which synthesizes the literature on citizenship and immigration, and theorizes on why citizenship matters. Maria C. Abascal (Columbia University) will then present on citizenship, belonging, and the role of community among Latino Immigrants.

These discussions will be followed by panels of distinguished experts on nationalism and membership; citizenship in the Global Compact on Migration; recent US policy changes related to citizenship; and the diverse responses of US communities to immigrants.This is CMS’s fourth annual academic and policy conference, which celebrates the work of leading scholars and thinkers on international migration.
