The dialectics of migration and refugee politics: how to interpret Germany’s response to the Syrian refugee crisis
National migration policies and politics engage in a dialectical relationship with the imagination of nationhood. This dialectical relationship unfolds differently in settler societies like Australia, Canada and New Zealand and a traditionally ethnic nation like Germany. This lecture employs the dialectical lens on migration to interpret Germany’s recent responses to the influx of refugees from Syria and other countries from the ‘Middle East’ and Africa.
Harald Bauder is an internationally recognised scholar in migration studies whose contributions include critical accounts of the political economy of immigration and settlement; labour market experiences of immigrants; and, immigration discourses in Canada and Germany. His most recent book Migration Borders Freedom problematizes the concept of the border and develops arguments for open borders and a world without borders.

“Wearables” are a growing segment within a broader class of health technologies that can support healthcare providers, patients and their families as a means of supporting clinical decision-making, promoting health promoting behaviours and producing better health literacies on both sides of the healthcare professional-consumer relationship. Mobile technologies have the potential to reduce health disparities given the growing ubiquity of smartphones as information visualisation devices, particularly when combined with real-time connections with personal sensor data.
This presentation reports on the findings from a seminar and stakeholder consultation organised by The Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health, in partnership with the University of Melbourne’s Research Unit in Public Cultures and the Better Health Channel.
Dr Ruth De Souza is the Stream Leader, Research Policy and Evaluation at the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health in Melbourne. Ruth has worked as a nurse, therapist, educator and researcher.
