Spanning the Global and Local Divide

Hosted by NYU Wagner's International Public Service Association (IPSA) student group

Immigration is often expressed as a local concern, separate from global migration and development issues. Yet the lived experience of immigrants spans beyond local realities. "Living Migration" brings the local and global conversations together to create a unified dialogue. The conference invites public officials, practitioners, academics, and students to examine policy opportunities and grassroots action on global and local levels, as well as the potential impact of these policies and actions in New York City.
