Overview

When a crisis hits a country, should it shut the door to migrants?

Migration is an important and sensitive topic today. Professor Antonio Marquina, leader of the ASEF-supported ASEM Education Hub Thematic Network on Human Security, will kick off the panel discussion with the presentation of the latest book he has edited,  Perspectives on Migration Flows in Asia and Europe. This publication is the third in a series by Asian and European scholars, after publications on energy security and global warming.

Prof Marquina analyses political, economic, social and environmental trends which prevent countries in Asia and Europe from stemming the flow of migrants. Factors that have played an important part include an ageing domestic population, the effects of the economic crisis, migration caused by environmental degradation and the exodus of political refugees.

The Panel includes discussants Dr Aris Ananta of the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS), Dr Md Mizanur Rahman of the Institute of South Asian Studies (ISAS)  and Dr Reuben Wong of the National University of Singapore (NUS). They will further examine this topic by commenting on the analyses by scholars and experts published in this book.
