11th International Metropolis Conference: Paths and Crossroads: Moving People, Changing Places

02.10.2006 - 06.10.2006

Universidade de Lisboa
Lisboa / Lissabon Link

Recent changes in legal and political practices in both places of origin and destination (e.g., acceptance of dual citizenship and the right to vote from abroad) are evidence of increasing interest in making the best of migrants¬í enduring connections with their homelands¬í communities (which may take on the form of a diaspora) and exploring multiple belonging as a non-zero sum form of affiliation. Positive recognition of multiple belonging may help to reduce integration pressures put on immigrants and their descendents who are frequently seen as people ¬ďsqueezed between two cultures and two countries¬Ē yet not fully belonging to either of them. A better management of international migration flows is largely dependent upon fair international co-operation. Redressing deeply asymmetrical relations takes more than global top-down initiatives and requires a truly multi-lateral engagement. Local authorities and other metropolitan players, including immigrants and their descendents, can take part in the development of sending regions, opening new doors to international dialogue and possibly acting on migratory pressure. However few and locally circumscribed the results of such initiatives may appear to be, one should not loose sight of both their micro and macro effects. Whether under the guise of remittances, telecommunications or savings, the aggregate structural effect of such micro-initiatives is now significantly changing both the peripheral and the core economies.
Will be of interest to policy makers, administrators and representatives from non-governmental organisations (NGOs) as well as academic researchers. Metropolis wants to reach all those with a professional interest in international migration and urban management issues.
Workshop proposal deadline Friday, 31 March 2006.
