Globalization and the Migrant Crisis in the Mediterranean – Tuesday May 15th
INTL Professor and Wayne Morse Center Resident Scholar Angela Joya will be giving a presentation – “Globalization and the Migrant Crisis in the Mediterranean” – on Tuesday, May 15th at 4pm in Knight Law Center 141.
This talk will compare how Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, and Egypt have shaped waves of recent migration from the Middle East and North Africa to European and other western countries. It will explore how the structural adjustment policies of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have contributed to forced displacement, along with wars and military conflicts. How are global power relations reproduced in the crises that turn workers and peasants into migrants and refugees, driving an increasing number of people to risk life and limb to cross the Mediterranean?
This event is free and open to the public. We hope you will join us.
