Immigration and its Discontents: International Migration After Brexit, Brussels, and Trump

July 27, 2017 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Columbia Global Centers | Mumbai

Immigration has become a hot button issue. From Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, and Germany to Singapore, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, it is churning electoral politics. A hundred years ago, similar discontents resulted in severe restrictions on immigration. Will history repeat itself? 

The Columbia Global Centers | Mumbai invites you to a public lecture and discussion by Dr. Neeraj Kaushal, Professor of Social Policy at Columbia University. Dr. Kaushal will discuss the primary drivers of these discontents, how they are related to immigration, and how they would shape the future of international migration.


Date: July 27, 2017
Time: 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Venue: Columbia Global Centers | Mumbai
Address: 12, Maker Chambers VI, 1st Floor, Jamnalal Bajaj Road, Nariman Point, Mumbai - 400021
