Immigration and Elections: Global Implications for 2024

Recently, immigration has ranked number one—even surpassing the economy—as the topic that most concerns voters when they consider whom to support in the U.S. presidential election. Migration trends over the past few years, along with shifting U.S. policy, have contributed to this political crucible. Other countries, particularly in Europe, have confronted similar fraught moments in their own politics over the migration issue.

A panel of experts explores the ways in which the U.S. response to migration challenges—both in terms of voter sentiment and federal policy—mirrors or departs from the response of other countries in the recent past.

This event is co-hosted by the Karsh Institute of Democracy and UVA’s Humanitarian Collaborative. It is part of the Karsh Institute’s Election 2024 series, which explores the importance of democratic elections in the United States and around the world.
