Special lecture by Ambassador William Lacy Swing (Director General, International Organization for Migration) recorded on 15 October 2012 at the Tsuzuki Lecture Theatre, St Anne's College.

During his visit to the University of Oxford, Ambassador Swing reflected upon the nuanced and complex relationship between crises and mobility, as well as the institutional set-ups and cooperation mechanisms that can complement and strengthen existing systems aimed at providing assistance and protection to crisis-affected populations. The discussion shed light on the types of migratory patterns that can result from complex crises; the effectiveness of migration policy tools in addressing certain aspects of crisis situations; and the ways in which mobility can be used as a positive strategy toward long-term recovery of crisis affected areas.
