CONFERENCES

 

I HUMAN GENOMIC HISTORY 


Mapping Human History categorize people for the interconnectedness of all humanity explaining the history of how human populations have inhabited almost all regions worldwide since human migrated out of Africa, and across the continents of Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas through our genes, archaeological and written records. DNA sequencing of ancient and contemporary human individuals have contributed to the knowledge of the human history. Furthermore, mutations, and genetic mistakes have been the key to trace the movement and spread of modern humans. 

 

 

II MIGRATION THROUGH THE TIME 


Human migration cause: Changes in the genetic and demographic structure of populations; draws together past and present patterns of population movements and Influence on the genetic, epidemiological and demographic characteristics of populations. The scientific tools for investigating human dispersals are innovative archaeological approaches including molecular techniques such as sequencing full genomes, genetics, gaining new insights into the biological, demographic and cultural processes. This is unrevealing the complex representation of prehistoric and historic dispersal of human populations.

 

A)    Ancient

Studies on ancient hominid genomes has become very important to help to understand our past and modern health patterns as well as specific genetic adaptation to disease susceptibility, such as towards malaria and other infectious diseases.

B)    Contemporary 

Human contemporary migration in the world has one difference from earlier forms: national borders. Borders block attempts to migrate, limit migration to certain groups or quotas and restrict migration to certain economic classes. While migration is still driven by the same basic pressures, it is now following economic patterns. This migration can be mapping by using frequency of genetic markers in modern peoples, and determine when and where modern humans move around the world.

 

 

III DISEASES AND MIGRATION 

 

A)    Infection diseases

Worldwide human migration have favored new opportunities for the spread and establishment of infectious diseases such as HIV, Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika, Ebola, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Neisseria meningitides, Salmonella spp. A good surveillance system in conjunction with diagnostic laboratories, vector control, health care education as well as government programs to inform the population the implementation of strategies to avoid infections will be needed to stop spread of these infectious diseases.

 

B)    Genetic Disorders and Migration

Genetic Disorders. In population genetics, gene flow (also known as gene migration) is the transfer of alleles or genes from one population to another. Migration into or out of a population may be responsible for a marked change in allele frequencies (the proportion of members carrying a particular variant of a gene). Consequently, many human diseases have been dependent on a genetic component.

 

 

IV CULTURAL CAUSES FOR MIGRATION

Migration is a global phenomenon, entailing the movement of people within (internal) and between (external) nation-states. Conference participants will draw from ethnographic cases to illuminate the socio-cultural; political; economic; demographic; as well as environmental causes and effects of human mobility. They will compare and contrast an emergent anthropology of mobility studies with the scholarship and research on immigration that has been regnant in the social sciences. Comprehending the complex socio-cultural dimensions of migration will help us prepare for and respond to the myriad opportunities and challenges posed by unprecedented flows of contemporary human migration. Indeed, reliable and timely data on the patterns of human mobility, as well as the demographics and health of migrant communities, is essential for understanding human variability, human ecology and health, not to mention vital to the formulation of culturally and politically viable migrant-sensitive socio-economic policies and practices.Migration is a global phenomenon, entailing the movement of people within (internal) and between (external) nation-states.

V THE NEW AGE OF INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION AND GLOBALIZATION 

Human migration has been an important activity in human societies, since 1890, approximately 3% of the population in the world has lived outside of their country of origin. Flows of human migrations was according to language sharing, colonial affinities and social ties, however, this has changed according to economic and political conditions. Globalization has increased human migration even as governments seek to more stringently rules, making difficult to study and understand international migration. Demographic composition and changes across both the developed and developing world have suggested that availability of human resources to multinational businesses seek the right work force.
