Wellbeing and Migration: Inter-Asian Perspectives (7-8 MAY)

Author: KUASIA and the Sussex Asia Centre (University of Sussex)

KUASIA (Koç University Center for Asian Studies) in association with the Sussex Asia Centre (University of Sussex) brings together international experts for the Conference on Migration and Wellbeing: Inter-Asian Perspectives. The primary purpose of the two-day conference at Koç University is to explore case-studies dealing with migration and mobility along diverse axes of Asian interactions: Eurasia, Middle East and West Asia, South and East Asia and the Indian Ocean. The aim of this Conference is to lead scholars to advance a critical understanding and to develop comparative studies on the dramatic changes brought about by new economic and social global forces in Asia, as well as to interrogate the concept of ‘Inter-Asia’ with respect to migration and wellbeing.
