On 15 April 2021, the ESIL IG on Migration and Refugee Law will host a Webinar titled ‘Understanding solidarity under international and EU refugee law: Between a rock and a hard place?’.
The Webinar is organised in the framework of this year’s ESIL Research Forum in Catania (‘Solidarity. The Quest for Founding Utopias of International Law’), with the collaboration of the Academy of Law and Migration (ADiM) at the University of Tuscia, Italy. It targets scholars at an early stage of their careers, who have been selected through Call for Papers in 2020.
A new Call for Papers is now open; applications should be submitted to email@example.com by 10 March 2021, with a short curriculum vitae containing the author’s name, institutional affiliation, contact information (e-mail and phone number), and whether the applicant is member of ESIL. Selected speakers will be notified by 25 March via e-mail. After the selection process, we are not aiming for fully-fledged papers from the selected speakers but for contributions of up to 3000-3500 words (extended abstracts). The eventual short papers (extended abstracts) should be sent to the IG conveners by 10 April 2021 in order to circulate them amongst the panelists prior to the workshop.
The Webinar will deal with the following issues: 1) The criminalisation of solidarity towards refugees and migrants; 2) The crisis of solidarity within the Common European Asylum System; 3) European solidarity towards third transit countries; 4) Other regional approaches to burden and responsibility-sharing in the framework of asylum policies; 5) Solidarity and vulnerability in the Global Compacts on migrants and refugees.
The link to access the Webinar will be shared with the IG members via email in due time
