Migration Upheavals, Sending and Receiving States, and Policy Responses

Cecilia Menjivar


This presentation will focus on the role of the sending and receiving states in shaping recent “migration upheavals,” as well as managing and implementing policy responses to these flows, with empirical attention to Central American migrations. It will highlight two aspects of the central role of the state in these migratory flows. First, it will underscore the role of both, sending and receiving states, in creating and sustaining these migration flows over decades. Questions about what the sending and receiving state do to create, sustain, and define these flows is central, as will be how different agencies of the state deal with these migrations. The general aim is to reflect on the involvement of different states in “migration upheavals and to point to intricacies and tensions within the states in these endeavors, so as to generate policy discussions.


Hostilities, “Civil” Society, and Growing Human Rights Abuses

Amanda Murdie

University of Georgia

This talk will focus on how recent increases in political polarization, inequality, and lack of compromise have created a potentially devastating situation for global human rights. Coupled with a growing attack on civil society, human rights in the next generation may be markedly worse than in the late 20th century.  The talk will focus on the causal pathways by which polarization and inequality could result in both intentional and unintentional strains on the current human rights regime. The goal of the talk is to generate discussion around how human rights supporters could continue to advocate for human rights improvement in an era where rights are polarized and civil society is constrained.


AI and Society: Institutional Design, and Engineering Responses

Michael Bernstein

Stanford University

Artificial intelligence (AI) is routinely criticized for its realized and potential impacts on society, and we lack adequate responses to this criticism and to the responsibility that it reflects. Whose labels should the AI be learning to emulate, and whose voices should drive the evaluation of the AI’s performance? Which stakeholder groups should be included in the design and development process, and how? What processes should be followed to help mitigate negative impacts on society? This talk will examine these issues and propose possible approaches drawn from our research at Stanford.


Adversarial Effects of Artificial Intelligence

Woo Simon Sungil


Recently, AI has made huge impacts on individuals as well as our society, where AI has been applied for many different applications and domains. However, mistakes or incorrect predictions that AI systems can possibly make can adversely cause harm and damages to people in certain cases. In particular, those adversarial effects have not been seriously researched compared to the positive effects of AI. In this talk, the possible adversarial effects of different AI systems are presented and discussed through the lens of security and privacy. Also, possible approaches to mitigate such adversarial effects and methods to strengthen the weakness of the existing AI systems are discussed.
