Write a 12-14 page (double-spaced, 12pt Times-Roman or roughly equivalent font, standard margins) proposal for a migration law or part of a migration law. Explain what the problem is with the existing law and how your proposal will solve that problem. Give as much detail as possible.
“Migration law” may be interpreted broadly. Your proposal could address admissions, integration, deportation, country of origin policies, refugee policies, etc. It will be more interesting to focus closely on just one aspect of the law, as opposed to comprehensive reform.
The law may apply to any level of government (e.g. local, state, or federal), or it may be directed at a national government, supranational government (e.g. EU), or multilateral institution (e.g. UN).
The proposal should include a feasibility analysis. What interest groups would likely support the law? What groups would be opposed? Cite claims for your analysis of where the support and challenges would come from, based on similar experiences in other contexts.
Cite any specific legal models from which your proposal draws, which may include earlier laws or proposals within the same jurisdiction about which you are writing, or from other jurisdictions.
All citations should be from reputable academic, government, or think tank sources. Avoid using media reports, which typically lack detail and analysis.
