UNU conversation with IOM DG, Amb William Lacy Swing

On 26 February 2015, UNU will host “Migration in the World Today”, a conversation with Ambassador William Lacy Swing, Director General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM). This event will start at 6:30 PM at UNU Headquarters in Tokyo.

Ambassador William Lacy Swing will join Sebastian von Einsiedel, Director of the UNU Centre for Policy Research, for a conversation exploring the current myths and reality of global migration trends, the challenges and opportunities of migration policy, and the processes at the top of the international agenda that influence policy. The conversation will consider some of IOM’s cross-cutting efforts to manage today’s complex migration issues at the intersections of human rights, international law, peace and security, gender equality and health.

The UNU Conversation Series aims to foster audience participation: you are encouraged to engage with the speakers during the conversation and at the reception that will follow, where all audience members are invited to enjoy the food and drinks that will be served while exchanging ideas and making new contacts.

Please note that this event will be in English only; Japanese interpretation will not be provided. Advance registration (by 25 February) is required from the UNU website below:
