Michael W. Doyle, University Professor at Columbia University, spoke at a panel discussion at the Paris Peace Forum on Tuesday 13 November 2018.

The inaugural Paris Peace Forum, a global platform for governance projects spearheaded by French President Emmanuel Macron, took place 11-13 November 2018, and is to become an annual international event promoting governance solutions in five key areas: peace and security, environment, development, new technologies, and inclusive economy. 

Inspired by the COP 21 model, the Paris Peace Forum is a forum for discussion and debate, but also a space for showcasing projects led by various stakeholders in governance, including international organisations, NGOs, think tanks, universities, companies and individuals with special emphasis on civil society initiatives.

Doyle framed the panel discussion on the topic of "International Mobility: Beyond the Migration Compact" and the role of the Model International Mobility Convention as a long-term, comprehensive approach to international migration.

He was joined by Mireille Delmas-Marty (Emeritus Professor of Collège de France, member of Academic Institute of France), Michelle Leighton (Director of the Migration Department, International Labor Organization), and Camilla Hagström (Deputy Head of Employment, Social Inclusion, Migration, European Commission (Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development)).
