Participation in the “Reimagining Global Economic Governance” Conference

Alan Hirsch, Research Fellow and leader of the Migration Governance Reform (MIGRA) project at the New South Institute, will be participating in the session “Managing Migration in the Global Economy” at the conference titled “Reimagining Global Economic Governance: African and Global Perspectives.” This event, co-hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA), is scheduled to take place from June 19-21, 2024, in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The session will address significant global challenges such as climate change, armed violence, population growth, and economic shifts that influence migration patterns. Discussions will focus on updating the global migration system to better meet the needs of today’s migrants and nations, and on enhancing international cooperation to reduce political and social unrest associated with migration.

The conference aligns with the G20 meetings in Johannesburg and aims to develop new frameworks for global economic governance that incorporate diverse perspectives from around the world, particularly those from African nations.

Further updates on the event and session details will be provided as they become available.
