Is the Nation-State the Enemy of Global Equality?

June 08, 2015 | 13:30 ET, 17:30 GMT

Cross-border labor mobility could be, on the face of it, the most potent force for global equality. This suggests nation states are the enemy of global equity. At the same time, rapid economic growth and development has historically required strong, healthy nation states. This lecture will discuss the benefits and limits of cross-border labor mobility in light of this dilemma.

This event is part of the 8th International Conference on Migration and Development, taking place on June 8-9. View the full agenda and download papers being presented on the conference Website.
