ASEF Workshop on irregular migration, 7-9 January 2008

The Asia-Europe Workshop 'Now you see them, now you don't. Defining irregular migrants in Europe and Asia and the immigration measures applied to them', funded by the ASEF and the Asia Alliance and organised by the Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies (University of Amsterdam), the Centre for Migration Law (Radboud University of Nijmegen) and the Institute of Occidental Studies (University Kenbangsaan Malaysia), was held in Malaysia from the 7th to 9th January 2008. ASEF has shown a strong commitment to comparative research on migration in Asia and Europe. Over the last five years it has funded conferences examining border control practices in the two regions, detention of foreigners and the changing patterns of age and migration - pensioners on the move. This workshop fits into this continuing interest, examining an important aspect of migration in both regions: the creation of irregularity and its consequences.
