Migration and Mobility Rights Initiative

At the Faculty of Law of McGill University, the Center for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism regroups a number of researchers on many issues related to human rights.

We started in 2009 a small group of colleagues and graduate students around the idea of mobility amd migration, with a focus on the rights, freedoms and responsibilities of the migrants.

Migration touches and is embedded in many other human rights issues, such as women"s rights, children’s rights, labour law, administrative due process, refugee law, humanitarian law, etc.

Migration is therefore a very complex human experience that must be addressed from the angle of several disciplines and must not be simplified.

Common activities are going to take place in the 2009-2010 academic year in order to analyse different dimensions of migration and mobility.

Here is a glimpse of some of our research topics:

• To begin, click on the play button;
• By clicking on the titles and videos, the presentation will automatically zoom in. To zoom out, just click on the background image;
• You can use the right and left arrows to navigate from one element to another;
• The up and down arrows will respectively zoom in and out, as well as the mouse’s wheel;
• To play, pause, rewind or fast forward a video, bring the mouse over it and the controls will appear on the screen.
