The Faculty of Law, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens organises a conference titled ‘Regulating ‘irregular’ migration: International Obligations and International Responsibilities’. The conference will be held on 20 March 2015 in Athens.
The conference aims to address the contemporary phenomenon of ‘irregular migration’ against the background of international law, including the law of international responsibilities. Special emphasis will be placed on the measures that states and international organisations undertake in order to control ‘irregular migration’, the respective obligations of states and the responsibility issues that may arise.
The keynote speech will be delivered by Professor Guy Goodwin-Gill (University of Oxford). Early-career researchers in the field of legal regulation of migration, including PhD students, are invited to present their work in progress. Abstracts of papers (not exceeding 300 words) should be addressed by 15 January 2015 to the conference convenors.
