Within the framework of the newly established UNU International Institute on the Alliance of Civilizations (UNU-IIAOC) in Barcelona, a book project has been jointly launched by the UNU Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS) and the Center of Studies and Research on Migrations at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (CERM-UAB). The overall objective of this project is to address the topic of circular migration with regard to its multiple dimensions and human, political and civil rights implications from a global perspective.
In this context, a second workshop will be held on 23–24 February 2012 at the historical site of Sant Pau (Casa Convalescencia) in Barcelona. This workshop will bring together selected experts to discuss different case studies illustrating circular migration patterns and policies, in different world regions and from a wide variety of perspectives.
