More than 100 global leaders in migration research, policy and advocacy gather June 11 to 13 at the University of Victoria for the inaugural Migration & Late Capitalism – Critical Intersections with the Asia-Pacific and Beyond conference.

In 2013, more than 230 million people, or 3.2 per cent of the world’s population, were migrants — a number that continues to rise in the face of increasing economic and environmental pressures.

Presented by the Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives’ Migration and Mobility Program, the three-day conference offers new theoretical directions, interdisciplinary approaches and critical dialogues on migration and mobility with a particular, but not exclusive, focus on the geopolitics of the Asia-Pacific region.

Visit uvic.ca/capi for more information and conference registration. The Migration & Late Capitalism Conference runs June 11 at 7 p.m. to June 13 at 6 p.m. in the Fraser Building at UVic.
