Tallinn University School of Governance, Law and Society research seminar: "Global citizens and local aliens: the rise of new migrant identities in the age of mobility" by Ave Lauren is taking place on 17 January at 16 in room A-325.
International migration is an issue that is at the very heart of the contemporary condition. It is no longer an isolated act carried out by a small group of individuals, but a central part of life for an increasing number of people globally. Alongside quantitative changes, international migration is also becoming qualitatively more diverse, involving a wider range of nationalities, ethnicities and socio- economic classes than ever before. In recent decades, these changes have led to the mobility of highly-skilled individuals emerging as an important new form of international migration and an issue of increased relevance in many countries.
