Westcom Point 8th Fl Block A, Mahiga Mairu Ave, Off Waiyaki Way

After nearly two years of study and debate convened by Columbia Global Policy Initiative's International Migration Project, the Model International Mobility Convention (MIMC represents a consensus among over 40 academics and policymakers in the fields of migration, human rights, national security, labor economics and refugee law.  the MIMC provides a holistic and rights-based approach to international mobility that integrates the various regimes that seek to govern people on the move.  In addition, it fills key gaps in international law that leave many people unprotected by establishing the minimum rights afforded to all people who cross state borders - whether as visitors, tourists, students, workers, residents, entrepreneurs, forced migrants, refugees, victims of trafficking, people caught in countries in crisis and family members - and defines their relationships to their communities of destination, origin and transit. 

The event will include a panel discussion with experts drawn from Government, academic and NGO sectors

The event is free and open to the general public including; academics, policymakers and practitioners in the fields of economic migration, labour rights, public policy, international law, labour migration, forced migration and refugee law
