Global Development Day 2023

Will human migration alter and challenge current landlocked-based territories and borders? What might the future of human migration look like when we focus on development, cities, and/or islands? Join us for thought-provoking and pioneering talks on development, islands, cities, and migration, where diverse ‘futures’ meet the present.
