Participation in the Annual Meeting of the International Studies Association, Montréal, 15th-18th March.

Last week, I participated in the Annual Meeting of the International Studies Association, the most important conference in international studies. I enjoyed sharing a panel with Professors Gabriella Montinola (UC Davis); Clarisa Pérez-Armendáriz (Bates College); and Jesse Acevedo (Denver University). Papers were presented on the political economy of remittances and their fiscal impact; remittances and labor rights, and migrants’ political involvement in contexts of violence and insecurity. It was great reconnecting with colleagues post-pandemia and listening to new emerging topics in International Relations.
