Migrant Personhood and Rights: Crises of Recognition

Project Directors: Thea Abu El-Haj, JC Salyer
Coordinator: Corinne Kentor

 This working group will explore the long-standing global crisis of recognition at the heart of anti-immigrant ideas and policies. It will focus on the discourses, practices, and institutions that actively deny immigrants recognition, as well as those discourses, practices, and institutions that recognize, support, and affirm migrants and their rights. They will engage with these issues in the areas of civics and education, immigration law and policy, and the characterization and treatment of migrants and refugees.
