Metropolis North America Migration Policy Forum - Association for Canadian Studies

Metropolis North America Migration Policy Forum

November 16-17, 2017 – Arlington, Virginia

Sheraton Pentagon City, Arlington, Virginia

This inaugural Policy Forum will be held in Washington, DC on November 16th and 17th, 2017. It will facilitate open and constructive discussion between policy-makers, researchers and practitioners in order to achieve better understanding of the respective challenges in the area of migration in the United States, Mexico and Canada. It will provide a platform to help assess the effects migration and pro- pose ideas to strengthen cooperation between the three countries.
Migration has profoundly shaped the economic and social condition of North Americans and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Geographic boundaries have shaped critical aspects in the relationship between the United States, Mexico and Canada with such things as population composition, labour and security. Cross-border linkages (e.g. ethnic networks, return migration, dual citizenship, diaspora politics, transnational criminal activity) create an ever-complex environment.
Constructive dialogue between key government and non-government stakeholders across various sectors in the three countries is essential towards ensuring successful collaboration in managing the considerable and valuable degree of people, goods and services moving across our borders.
Metropolis North America aims to provide opportunities informed dialogue by organizing Forums to be held in the United States, Canada and Mexico over the next two years. The objective is to develop a research agenda that identifies the key cross-border issues that will benefit from an evidence-base to better inform policy deliberation across relevant sectors.
