Global Migration Conference: Inclusion and Exclusion
Boston College Law School and Boston College School of Social Work will hold the inaugural Boston College Global Migration Conference: Inclusion and Exclusion on April 11-12, 2019 at the Boston College Law School campus in Newton, MA.
In the United States and around the world, exclusionary politics and policies against migration – and against the inclusion of migrants into many nation states – are on the rise. What can and what should be done?
On April 11 and 12, 2019, the Boston College Global Migration Conference: Inclusion and Exclusion will bring together leading experts – academics, policymakers, activists, refugee rights advocates, and mental health professionals – to address global trends and tensions between inclusion and exclusion.
Join us as we examine various visions and details of global migration policies in this critical moment, with a particular focus on whether current professional legal and social work service models are sufficient, and how, together, we may best understand and protect the rights of non citizens.
CEUs for Social Workers: Participants who register as social workers will be eligible for a total of 9 CEUs for the conference. Each Plenary is 1 CEU; each Concurrent Session is 1.5 CEUs.
Friday, April 12, 2019 at 8:30am to 12:15pm
