Myron Weiner Seminar Series on International Migration

During each academic year, the committee sponsors a seminar series on international migration, held at MIT's Center for International Studies (CIS). In fall 2005, the series was re-named The Myron Weiner Seminar Series on International Migration in honor of the late founder of the Inter-University Committee and former director of CIS. The seminars explore factors affecting international population movements and their impact upon sending and receiving countries and relations among them.
