The border between Mexico and the United States, and the southern border of the European Union in the Mediterranean, are two of the most important border zones crossed by migrants from developing countries in their efforts to reach the global north. The phenomenon of human mobility at these geo-politically charged nexus points presents many of the key issues being negotiated by UN Member States in an effort to agree on a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration in 2018.
On 22 May 2018, the UNU Institute on Globalization, Culture and Mobility (UNU-GCM), in collaboration with the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) Seminar on Studies on Internal Displacement, Migration, Exile and Repatriation, will organise a dialogue that offers a comparative analysis of these two global border regions to reflect on the challenges of human mobility present in both. The dialogue will be structured as a round table discussion by expert panelists from Latin America and Europe.
