ELIAMEP is co-organizing the International Conference “The Global Migration Turn: How New Migration Governance Changed the World in the Long 1970s” that examines the radical transformation in mobility and migration patterns and policies that occurred between the late 1960s and early 1980s. It focuses on the shift from active immigration policies to more restrictive stances in North America and Western Europe and explores the causes and consequences. Themes include changing immigration policies, refugee issues, and the role of international organisations. By bringing together scholars across disciplines, the conference aims to bring fresh, ground-breaking perspectives to the study of postwar global history. We aim to decipher the transformations that took place during the extensive period of the 1970s, which shaped migration as a globally prominent issue, particularly between an expanding West and the rest of the world.
