This conference was part of a longer meeting for a range of international scholars, to develop the first large database of immigration and naturalisation policies, the International Migration Policy and Law Analysis Database (IMPALA).
This event was designed to share more broadly the benefits of bringing these experts to Australia. It showcased the recent work or thinking of a range of international scholars, discussing three key areas of immigration policy: skilled migration (and the balance with family migration); refugees and humanitarian flows; and integration, settlement and citizenship.
Panellists and speakers included:
Selecting the Best
Manufactured Crises: The politics of asylum and detention
Managing Integration: Settlement and anti‐immigrant sentiment
This event was presented by the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney, in collaboration with Harvard University and the Faculties of Law and Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney.
