The ESIL Interest Group (IG) on Migration and Refugee Law is organizing a pre-conference event on the 6th of September 2017 in Naples (Italy) entitled “The Future of International Migration Law”, in the framework of the 13th ESIL Annual Conference (7-9 September 2017). Our Interest Group will host two panels of speakers: one on the de-fragmentation of EU migration and asylum governance (confirmed speakers in provisional programme), and another panel on (ab)normalities of international migration and refugee law: challenges and innovations. For the latter we are launching a call for papers.
We are not aiming for fully-fledged papers but for contributions of up to 2000 to 2500 words (extended abstracts). The eventual short papers (extended abstracts) should be sent to the IG conveners by 15 August 2017 in order to circulate them amongst the panellists prior to the workshop.
The Interest Group invites submissions of abstracts of no more than 400 words. Applications should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 June 2017, with a short curriculum vitae containing the author’s name, institutional affiliation, and contact information. The selected presenters will be notified by 30 June 2017. Please note that the Interest Group also invites the submission of papers by non-ESIL members.
