Migration and World Capitalism

Miliband Lecture

Date: Tuesday 13 January 2004
Time: 6.30pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
: Professor Bob Sutcliffe
Chair: Professor David Held

Migration is now one of the central issues of world politics and economies. How does it fit into the present structure of world capitalism? Who benefits and who loses from present patterns of migration? Is it the continuation of imperialism in a new guise or a route to emancipation and democracy? What should socialist say and do about it?

Professor Bob Sutcliffe is a Visiting Miliband Fellow at LSE. Prior to this, he taught economics at the University of Bilbao, Spain.
