Migration and Circles of Insecurity

A roundtable discussion on Migration and Circles of Insecurity was organized on August 26, 2005. This was the first in the series of post review stage of the various studies undertaken as part of the Non Traditional Security project formulation. The purpose of this particular stage was to flag a new series of discussion and come out with policy recommendations.

The study Migration and Circles of Security by Ranabir Samaddar and Paula Banerjee looks at the taxonomy of security and insecurity with a constant reflection on trafficked women, resource politics and enclave economy in connection to the population flow within Northeast from the adjoining regions of Burma, Nepal and Bangladesh. It also offers new models of analysis to understand how the larger issues of security and insecurity are introduced with respect to migration or population flows.
