GLOBAL MIGRATION

A follow-up to the Immigration Working Group, The Global Migration Working Group will debate and explore from within an interdisciplinary lens important aspects of migration affecting the life and well-being of migrants, refugees and stateless persons in the United States and, more broadly, the overall dynamics of migration in the Western Hemisphere. Among the topics we would like to discuss are refugee resettlement and integration; migrant identity; deportation; detention conditions for migrants; and security and migration. The workshop seeks to become a referent point for the discussion of migration affairs among scholars and activists in Chicago and the larger Midwest.

Storming the Wall:  Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security

For the past fifteen years Todd Miller has researched, written about, and worked on immigration and border issues from both sides of the U.S. Mexico divide for organizations such as BorderLinks, Witness for Peace, and NACLA. He did the brunt of this work in Tucson, Arizona and Oaxaca, Mexico, with stints in New York City sprinkled in. Between Tucson and the Buffalo/Niagara Falls region of New York state where he grew up, he has spent the majority of his life close to the U.S. international boundary, south and north. He is the author of Border Patrol Nation (City Lights, 2014), his writings about the border have appeared in the New York Times, TomDispatch, Mother Jones, The Nation, Al Jazeera English, and Salon among other places.
