What is the impact of new migration on cohesion and integration?

Description

The government and the media regularly make the case that migration must be restricted in order to ensure community cohesion and encourage integration. To shed light on the relationship, the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) recently commissioned a major report on the impacts of migration on cohesion and integration. This month's presenters include three of the four authors of that report and they will reflect on the findings of their research. They will also discuss what the findings mean for policymakers.

How will climate change impact on migration?

Description

Allan Findlay, Professor of Population Geography, School of Geography and Geosciences, University of St. Andrews, gives a talk for the COMPAS breakfast briefing series. The impact of global climate change on human mobility and migration has been in the news recently because of the landmark publication of the Foresight research, Migration and Global Environmental Change, a two year study led by the UK Government Office for Science, which drew on a major body of evidence produced by several experts from across the globe to understand how diverse environmental changes will converge on populations between now and 2060; as well as the profound consequences for those who move and for those who stay behind, and also for the regions of origin and destination.

mean for migrant communities? - COMPAS Breakfast Briefing

Description

The Coalition government's policy agenda on 'the Big Society' marks a major shift in the landscape. It has been described as radically passing power from the state to citizens and civil society. What does it mean for migrants, for migrant community organisations, and for communities where migrants live? What opportunities and threats does it bring for the sector? And is there any evidence yet on the impact of the new agenda? This briefing will be presented by Vaughan Jones, Chief Executive of Praxis, a community-based organisation working with migrants in London. Part of COMPAS Breakfast Briefing series: topical, cutting edge research on migration and migration related issues will be made accessible to an audience of policy makers and other research users.

21A.336 Marketing, Microchips and McDonalds: Debating Globalization (MIT) 21A.336 Marketing, Microchips and McDonalds: Debating Globalization (MIT)

Description

Everyday we are bombarded with the word "global" and encouraged to see globalization as the quintessential transformation of our age. But what exactly does "globalization" mean? How is it affecting the lives of people around the world, not only in economic, but social and cultural terms? How do contemporary changes compare with those from other historical periods? Are such changes positive, negative or simply inevitable? And, finally, how does the concept of the "global" itself shape our perceptions in ways that both help us understand the contemporary world and potentially distort it? This course begins by offering a brief overview of historical "world systems," including those centered in Asia as well as Europe. It explores the nature of contemporary transformations, including th Everyday we are bombarded with the word "global" and encouraged to see globalization as the quintessential transformation of our age.
