Migration during an Era of Restriction
In early November of 2009, the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies (LLILAS), the Irma Rangel Public Policy Institute, and other units at the University of Texas at Austin sponsored the conference "Migration during an Era of Restriction." The conference participants included researchers, policy analysts, and legal experts from the United States, France, Germany, Spain, Russia, Turkey, Mexico, and Peru. Through panel presentations and roundtable discussions, the conference sought to address the economic, social, and legal restrictions that affect international migrant populations in these regions. In doing so, they addressed migration developments in the United States and Europe as well as in sending communities around the globe. Specific topics included immigration policies, ethnic tensions, border controls, deportations, remittances, return migration, legal and human rights issues, and how removals affect sending nations. The conference also included a panel of graduate student paper presentations.
