In recent decades, labour markets around the globe have undergone enormous change and more migrants than ever are relocating to take advantage of employment opportunities. Increasingly, highly-skilled migrants are able to select their destinations of choice from multiple options. As result, states must compete for desirable migrants. More and more, governments are looking at citizenship issues within a transnational framework and exploring the implications of citizenship requirements for both migrant-sending as well as migrant-receiving countries.

Join a distinguished group policymakers and academics from both sides of the Pacific to discuss citizenship policy and the implications for state relations and migrant mobility.

Presenters include Ms. Caroline Guimond, Canadian High Commission (Singapore), Dr. Elaine Ho, Department of Geography, NUS (Singapore), Dr. Leong Chan-Hoong, Institute for Policy Studies (Singapore), Dr. Shirley Hsiao-Li Sun of Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), and Mr. Kenny Zhang, Asia Pacific Foundation (Vancouver, Canada).

We look forward to meeting you at the post-conference roundtable. For further queries, please contact any of the roundtable organizers:
