Call for Contributions – Multidisciplinary International Conference
ACCESS TO REGULATED PROFESSIONS:
THE CHALLENGE OF GLOBAL MOBILITY
Conference organized by the Partnership on the Analysis of Professions’ Regulations: Inclusion, Citizenship & Access (website available soon)
HEC Montreal, June 14-16, 2017
Globalization with its ever-increasing migration flows, diversified career paths and expanding international agreements presents both challenges and opportunities to foreign-trained workers seeking integration into host societies. For professionals in regulated sectors, the path to recognition and integration may be particularly difficult. Procedures for accessing the regulated professions will differ from country to country. In Quebec and elsewhere in Canada, the responsibility for regulating professions in the public interest, conferred by the state to professional licensing bodies, usually serves as main argument for establishing various compensation measures for accessing these professions.
This conference will bring together practitioners and researchers linked to various disciplines (lawyers, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, stakeholders responsible for admission into a professional association as well as many other stakeholders associated with professional systems or working in the employment integration field) in order to reflect upon these questions to compile findings and to identify courses of action.
Researchers and practitioners with an interest in regulated professions, global mobility and public protection issues are invited to submit a contribution abstract. It may be submitted in French or English and must include:
- A title
- A summary of 350 words
- A short resume of the person submitting the paper.
Proposed contributions must be submitted by December 20, 2016. The Conference Selection Committee will send their response by January 20, 2017. Fees for registration will be communicated shortly. Please send your submission, or any question you may have regarding the conference, to Ms. Geneviève St-Laurent ([email protected]), Project Coordinator.
