This keynote panel shall question and examine the effectiveness of the migration (including forced migration) policies we see in place around the world today - drawing upon examples from the United Kingdom, China, the United States, and the European Union. Within these contexts, the panelists will interrogate the real versus illusory aims and procedures of migration policies. Moreover, the panelists will discuss what it means for a migration policy to be “successful” and how such success can be defined, measured, and compared across time and place.

The plenary session will explore to what extent social protection policies can contribute to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 1 – to End Poverty in all its Forms Everywhere. Are Social Protection policies the most effective and efficient instruments for SDG1, or are other policy options better suited? Does the design matter? What are the choices and implications of using means tested support versus basic income provisions in poverty alleviation or elimination. Do we see sufficient political will at the national and global level to encourage action, and if not, how can it be created? What do we consider the role of NGOs/ supranational institutions to support change?

*Additional speakers may be listed upon confirmation.
