          Workshop on Migration and Diversity in Asian Contexts
          *Date:* 25/09/2008 - 26/09/2008 *Venue:* ARI Seminar Room  469A Tower
        Block, Level 10, Bukit Timah Road  National University of Singapore @
         BTC *
        Organisers:* The event is jointly organised by Asia Research Institute
        Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Migration Cluster, National
        of Singapore      *Description:*

        The increasing scale and quickening pace of transnational migration and
        mobility has brought about increasing levels and forms of social
        in societies and communities in many parts of the world. In general,
        migrations and movements of peoples, along with their ideas, beliefs
        practices, are taking place and resulting in unprecedented diversities
        populations and communities living together.  This has led to growing
        concern and widening debate on the ways and means of coping with
        In Western 'immigration countries' such as the United Kingdom, Germany,
        France, Denmark and Holland in the European Union and others such as
        Australia and New Zealand, the concerns and debates variously focus
        the discourses and practices of 'multiculturalism', 'integration',
        and responsibilities', 'social cohesion', 'social inclusion',
        'cosmopolitanism' and 'unity in diversity', with much attention paid to
        often overlapping dimensions of class, ethnicity and religion.

        In contrast, there has been relatively little attention given to the
        diversity in countries, cities and communities in Asia.  While issues
        debates are also variously emerging over `multiculturalism',
        `rights and responsibilities', `social cohesion', `cosmopolitanism' and
        'diversity' in some of these Asian settings, their processes, meanings
        significances need to be understood within their contexts which are
        constituted by highly distinct and varied postcolonial histories,
        geographies, and political economies.

        The increasing social diversity being woven into the fabrics of Asian
        societies and communities is fuelled primarily by a wide range of
        migration flows. Different migration (and citizenship) regimes
        underlie the migration-diversity connections involved. In some Asian
        countries, a bifurcated labour migration system is predominant, with
        unskilled and low-skilled regulated by a 'use-and discard' contract
        system which encourages transience and discourages settlement, while
        highly skilled are encouraged to put down roots through more liberal
        immigration and permanent residency systems. The large numbers of
        undocumented migrants add further complexities to the landscapes of
        diversity – while they do not necessarily appear in the categories
         used by
        the state in policy formulations and are socially 'invisible' or
        they are tolerated for their labour which fills shortages in booming
        economic sectors but expelled in times of economic downturns and

        Other forces are also at work in infusing social complexity into
        Asian settings. Cross-nationality marriages is on the rise in several
        countries and 'foreign spouses' and 'children of mixed marriages' is
         now a
        reality for many families and communities, raising issues of difference
        of intercultural and cross-cultural living. The phenomenon of 'return
        migration' – often encouraged by policies aimed at reversing 'brain
        or replenishing dwindling or ageing populations – is also adding to
        diversity of 'home' countries, often accompanied not only by a politics
        difference but also of sameness.

        The issues around migration and increasing diversity in Asia in some
        need to be understood within the contexts of already pluralistic
        such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Some of these societies have
        historically encountered conflicts and tensions between ethnic groups
        also experienced accommodation and integration efforts and processes.
        other cases, they are occurring in relatively homogeneous societies
         such as
        Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China, and immigration pose a new challenge
         both to
        policymakers and to the public besides to the immigrants themselves. In
        general, for members of host societies, the tremendous speed and scale
        immigration and the variety of immigrants' backgrounds pose adjustment
        problems of perception and acceptance of immigrants and of changes to
        existing social orders, cultures and identities.

        Understanding the migration-diversity landscape and dynamics in Asian
        contexts requires examination at different levels: nation-state and
        cities and their specific characteristics, local communities, small
        interpersonal relations and individual persons. It also requires
        simultaneous attention on the spheres of policy and management, and
        and interaction by both immigrants and locals. These include migration
        policies, citizenship regimes and integrative approaches and mechanisms
        diversity management; migrant settlement patterns and 'contact zones';
        intercultural processes, events and experiences.

        A focus on Asian contexts also entails more than just a comparison with
        existing scholarship on migration and diversity in western contexts. It
        also important to scrutinise the relevance of some of the main
        and debates on diversity and diversity management in the West when
        to Asian contexts.

        This research workshop has the following aims:

        1. to explore and understand the changing landscape of migration and
        diversity in various Asian contexts,
        2. to understand the emerging major discourses, debates and issues on
        3. to examine current dominant approaches in scholarship, policy and
        practice on migration and diversity, towards better understanding and
        management of diversities in Asian contexts, and
        4. to identify key areas for further in-depth research.


        This workshop will be based on suitable papers received from interested
        participants and invited speakers. We welcome papers which discuss any
        population groups and aspects of the migration-diversity connections in
        context of any Asian setting. Population groups can include men, women,
        children and youths, ethnic and gendered minorities, families, workers,
        communities. Papers may be of a theoretical nature, take the form of
