*Disciplining Global Movements. Migration Management and its Discontents*

Throughout the world, governments and intergovernmental organisations such as the International Organization for Migration develop new approaches aiming at renewing migration policy-making. This workshop will critically analyse the actors, discourses and practices of migration management, with both empirical investigations of new forms of migration policy and analytical explorations* *of their political and ideological foundations.
