With more nations taking steps to tighten their borders and more people on the move than ever before, perhaps no force in today's world is as polarizing as global migration. This panel discussion will bring together The New York Times and leading academics to debate and discuss the tensions, challenges and possibilities surrounding global migration.

Speakers include Julian Burnside AO QC; Damien Cave, Australia Bureau Chief, The New York Times; and Professor Karen Farquharson, Head of School, Social and Political Sciences. The panel will be facilitated by Professor Michelle Foster, the inaugural Director of the Peter McMullin Centre on Statelessness at Melbourne Law School.

This event is running in partnership with Hard Truths, an exhibition of prize-winning photography from The New York Times, which will be officially launched on 12 September.

Guests attending the panel discussion are invited to visit the exhibition in the Arts West Atrium from 5.45pm. The panel discussion will commence at 6.30pm in the Forum Theatre.

Hard Truths will be on display in the Arts West Atrium from 12 September - 11 October.
