Michelle Bachelet, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Discusses Migration and Human Rights
The world faces an extraordinary challenge with the mass migration of people across states and countries seeking safety and the opportunity for a better life. People leave their families, homes and communities driven by specific adverse situations such as violence and discrimination, climate change, lack of access to social and cultural rights, poverty, and others. For migrants, key challenges include anti-immigrant narratives, finding pathways for safe and regular migration, and eventually--in the cases of some--finding safe pathways for a dignified return to their countries and communities. United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet will speak about human rights and migration. She will address how we as a global community can and should respond to protect the rights of those who are forced to migrate due to adverse circumstances beyond their control. As part of her discussion, she will reference select adverse immigration drivers to illustrate her points. High Commissioner Bachelet will be joined by Professor Kevin Johnson, Dean of the University of California, Davis, School of Law. Dean Johnson will engage the High Commissioner with commentary and questions.
