Professor Stephen Castles Festschrift

Recently, Professor Stephen Castles retired from his academic appointment at the University of Sydney. Stephen has been, and continues to be, a key international scholar in the field of migration and mobility. A number of events will take place in March 2017 to commemorate his retirement. We hope that in coming together to recognise his long contribution, these events will act as a strategic site for new critical thinking about the future of human mobility.

These events are open to all scholars and the public, but places are limited and registration is required.
