12/2/16: Enforcing Rights Across Borders

WorkshopAgenda_120516.pdf (PDF, 2 MB)

This volume is the first to bridge the work on immigrant advocacy in the United States with a transnational perspective that interrogates the role of migrant civil society and state governance across borders. We examine the accountability strategies for both U.S. and Canadian agencies charged with enforcing rights protections, and the directives of the Mexican state to protect the interests of its nationals living abroad, as well as returnees and Central American migrants in transit.   These case studies provide a multi-sited transnational perspective from a dozen experts from Mexico, Canada, and the United States, focusing on Governance, Labor, Human Rights, Education, Health, and Membership.
