GLOBAL MIGRATION 

The migrant crisis in Europe and the Middle East has shaped the political discourse around the world and specifically in Europe and North America. The desire to take back control over immigration propelled many Britons to vote for Brexit. In the US elections, Donald Trump promised to crack down on illegal immigration that got him elected last November.

The war in Syria and the refugee crisis continues to occupy political leaders as to how to address the migration and refugee crisis. While OECD reports that overall G20 countries have benefited from global migration – from economic and labour market perspectives – yet immigration and refugee issues continue to dominate public discourse.

In 2015, the number of migrants worldwide was the highest ever recorded, having reached 244 million (from 232 million in 2013). Europe remains the highest destination for migrants, followed by the US, Australia, Canada and other part of the Middle East.  To lead the public discussion on Global Migration, the Glendon School of Public and International Affairs is organizing a conference to debate the ramifications of migration.

At the Glendon Global Debates, experts will discuss some of these issues and will touch on the following:

  • Political, economic, social and cultural impact of global migration in the West and around the globe;
  • The Middle East crisis and the impact of immigration and refugee crisis in the Western countries;
  • How is global migration and refugee crisis impacting Canada? What can we do better?
  • What are some of the new ideas to address migration and refugee issues?

GLOBAL POPULISM: POLITICAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The rise of populism has rattled the political establishment. Brexit, the victory of Donald Trump and the support for right-wing political parties in Germany, Austria, the rise of populist movements in the rest of the world have shocked the so-called elites. Much head scratching has resulted as  Western leaders seek to work out why large chunks of their electorate, in the West, are rejecting traditional parties. Is it as a result of the 2007-2008 economic crisis?  The decade since the financial crisis suggests that the system of economic governance that has held sway for the past four decades is broken. What are some of the other causes of global populism? How should moderate leaders respond? To lead the public discussion on Global Populism, the Glendon Campus of York University is organizing a conference to debate the topics.

At the Glendon Global Debate, experts will discuss some of these issues and will touch on the following:

  • What is populism and what are its roots in the current context?
  • Is populism a result of growing inequality or something else, like migration processes?
  • What are the political, economic, social and cultural impact of global populism in the West and around the globe?
  • How is global populism impacting Canada? Is the economic system working for everyone?
  • What are some of the new ideas to address populism – new industrial strategy?
