This conference explores how the regulation of migration has often served complex political and economic agendas by reinforcing inequalities through imposed legal categories. Through immigration restrictions, governments have acted to exclude, control, and derive gain from groups of men and women who, driven by poverty, environmental degradation, violence, and repression, have sought to enter the borders they enforce.
