Skilled Migration and Careers: Transitions and Agents

Darlington Centre, University of Sydney
9am - 6.30pm, Thursday 22nd November, 2012

While discussion and debate on skilled migration has raged and waned in Australia throughout the post WWII period and has now become an important area of research, policy prescription and discussion internationally, it is rare that scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds come together to present, discuss and critique their research and to link with contemporary policy debates. The Diversity in Work Research Group presents an invitation only event on skilled migration and careers. The event brings together Australian and International scholars, policy advisors and practitioners on diversity, career and migration. The focused event aims to generate a dialogue between scholars and practitioners from multiple backgrounds to foster new insights into this important contemporary issue and includes:

  • Professor Graeme Hugo: University of Adelaide, Australia
