Call for papers: Boat refugees

The Refugee Law Initiative, University of London, and the School of Law, Queen Mary, University of London have issued a call for papers for a conference on “Boat Refugees and Migrants at Sea: A Comprehensive Approach Integrating Maritime Security with Human Rights”, to take place June 23-24, 2014.

The conference aims to comprehensively address the contemporary phenomenon of ‘boat migration’ with a holistic approach. We will consider its multiple facets, combining knowledge from several disciplines and regions of the world, with a view to making a decisive contribution to our understanding of current trends, against the background of the fragmentary responses adopted and innumerable tragedies occurred thus far.
