Deconstructing Myths and Negative Narratives Around Migration
Conversations about migration are largely shaped by myths and misconceptions that distort our understanding. How might we move beyond these myths and embrace a more informed conversation that draws on real-world experience?
Join us for a conversation with experts, who will discuss a forthcoming report, Deconstructing Myths and Negative Narratives Around Migration. The report is produced by the OAS Department of Social Inclusion, Equilibrium CenDE, and the Club de Madrid, the world’s largest forum of democratic former presidents and prime ministers. Conversation will draw on the experience of such countries as Colombia, Peru and Mexico. Discussion will explore various understandings and discourses about migration as well as policies and practices and the various ways in which populations react to migration.
A reception will follow the panel discussion. Refreshments will be served.
