New Forced Migration Unit and Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce the (re-)establishment of the Forced Migration Unit within HRLC. Led by Dr Daria Davitti, the Unit will be formally launched in the new academic year, but is already bustling with activity.

HRLC has a long-standing reputation in carrying out outstanding research in forced migration and in organising inspiring events on refugee law-related issues. The relaunch of the Forced Migration Unit will enable us to once again assume a leading position in this area. Given its potential to influence policy-making in Europe, the Unit will initially focus its activities on the European refugee 'crisis'.

On 7-8 November, the Unit will host a workshop on Tackling Root Causes? EU Aid and Governance to Control Migration. The workshop aims to bring together scholars, non-governmental organisations, policy and lawmakers to discuss the nexus between EU development policies and EU migration policies, and their broader legal and political implications. Papers from different interdisciplinary perspectives are welcomed and contributions are expected to examine the implications of current EU migration and/or development policies. For further information and submission details, please refer to the call for papers (PDF). The workshop is funded by the Rights and Justice Research Priority Area of the University of Nottingham.
