Conference organized by James Hollifield, 2021-2022 Paris IAS Research Fellow, Director of the Tower Center at SMU, as part of the Owens Foundation, with the support of Sciences Po CERI, the Convergences Migrations Institute, and the Paris Institute for Advanced Study.

The Jno E. Owens Fund Conference, sponsored by the Tower Center at SMU and this year by the Paris Institute for Advanced Study, will examine the complex relationship between migration, and economic and human development, paying special attention to:

(1) Migration, trade and international investment dynamics with an eye to explaining their impact on human development and global inequalities;

(2) How migration and asylum-seeking affect inequalities in human capital and development, notably in skill levels, capital accumulation, health, and wealth generation (via financial and immaterial remittances) across sending and receiving countries and regions;

(3) How migration and asylum-seeking affect and are affected by the environment-development nexus: understanding forced migration, human displacement, and migration-related inequalities across the natural and built-in environment;

(4) How inequalities affect and are affected by migration and socio-political transformations (diaspora politics, state building, political and social remittances).
