On the Move: Migration, Mobility, and Global Trade

This summer in Mexico City, MG20 participants will engage with one of the most complex and relevant issues of our time: immigration. Based in the best technology university in Mexico; the Tecnológico de Monterrey, Santa Fe Campus in Mexico City, this program will equip students, for five days, with the tools they need for thoughtful analysis, critical thinking and compassionate yet practical decision making. Along the way, they will explore everything from why people choose to immigrate to border policies, labor laws, and economics – all while gaining firsthand experience in Mexico’s dynamic culture.

Speakers

Bio
Professor King chairs Harvard’s Bi-Partisan Program for Newly Elected Members of the U.S. Congress, and he directs the Program for Senior Executives in State & Local Government. Since joining the Harvard faculty in 1992, Professor King’s courses have focused on Legislatures, Political Parties, and Interest Groups. In the wake of the 2000 presidential elections, Professor King directed the Task Force on Election Administration for the National Commission on Election Reform, chaired by former presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. That effort culminated in landmark voting rights legislation signed by President Bush in late 2002. He later oversaw an evaluation and new management structure for the Boston Election Department.
