Melbourne Journal of International Law: UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES: THE IMPACT OF MIGRATION LAW & POLICY 25 & 26 October 2013 Call for Papers
This conference explores the unintended consequences of domestic migration policy, legislation or the application of relevant treaty obligations. Migration Law regulates the movement of people across international borders. The consequences of migration law and policy can traverse migration and human rights law to impact in unexpected areas such as education and unemployment. In a globalised world with rising migration, these unintended consequences can contribute to societal problems ranging from ‘brain drain’ to impacts on employment in particular industries, to the overall financial health of the education sector, and more.
