Call for papers: alleged criminal asylum-seekers and other migrants

25-26 January 2016
Hosted by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, University of London
Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)

This international conference initiates reflection on the emerging public policy challenge of excluded asylum-seekers and other migrants suspected of serious criminality but who cannot be removed from the territory of the host State.

The conference forms part of an AHRC-supported international research network project led by the Refugee Law Initiative, University of London, and the Center for International Criminal Justice, VU University Amsterdam. It aims to present and discuss state-of-the-art research and thinking by network participants, whilst incorporating new perspectives gathered via an open call for papers. Alongside high-profile academic experts, the event will be attended by policy-makers from over a dozen countries who participate in the network.

To propose a paper, please send an abstract of up to 300 words by email to david.cantor [at] sas.ac.uk before Monday 5 October 2015.
