After a stellar career with the US State Department, during which he served as ambassador at six posts, William Lacy Swing was in 2008 elected as head of the International Organization for Migration.

You might have seen some media coverage of Ambassador Swing's meeting with Immigration Minister Chris Bowen, and you can listen to the Lowy Institute address he delivered yesterday, during which he addressed some persistent myths about global migration. Below, a short interview covering the highlights of his speech.
