Migrations Forum

Thursday, February 25, 2021 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

The Migrations Forum is an interdisciplinary works-in-progress series for Cornell migrations scholars, bringing together graduate students and faculty across disciplines to share ongoing research.

At this session, Ian Kysel will present on the topic of "Launching a Migrant Rights Database."

Ian M. Kysel, visiting assistant clinical professor of law teaching in Cornell Law School's Asylum and Convention Against Torture Appellate Clinic, brought the International Migrants’ Bill of Rights (IMBR) Initiative to Cornell in July 2019. The IMBR is both a global collaboration supporting human rights research and advocacy and a nonbinding declaration of basic human rights for people who cross borders for any reason. Now the team is at work on developing the first migrant rights database. The IMBR Initiative has just finished preliminary analysis of research looking at 36 countries accounting for close to 70 percent of all migrants – and how those countries measure up against international migration law. At this session of the Migrations Forum, Kysel will discuss his team’s goals, efforts, and what lies ahead for their project.
