CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS/PAPERS: INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
The Persistent Reality of Forced Migration
It appears trite to proclaim the relevance of forced migration. It is, without doubt, a defining aspect of our time, with its impacts felt acutely across the globe. Indeed, the current scale of forced migration is without precedent. Those who are compelled to leave their homes often undertake dangerous journeys in the hope of reaching relative safety, yet are too often received with suspicion, hostility and exclusion. While the immediacy of the situation is clear to see, experience has shown that such immediacy can swiftly turn to intractability, bringing with it a sense of permanence and seeming inevitability. Socio-Legal Studies Association (SLSA) 2018 – University of Bristol, United Kingdom, 27-29 March 2018. Proposal submissions are open until 8 January 2018 (6pm). More information available here.

Organized by Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in collaboration with IOM and MSF, Amsterdam, 14-15 June 2018. More information available here.

Happy Belated International Migrant Day (18 December 2017): Safe Migration in a World on the Move
“Migration has always been with us. Climate change, demographics, instability, growing inequalities, and aspirations for a better life, as well as unmet needs in labour markets, mean it is here to stay. The answer is effective international cooperation in managing migration to ensure that its benefits are most widely distributed, and that the human rights of all concerned are properly protected.” — UN Secretary-General António Guterres
