Event description

Description

This seminar brings together scholars from sociology and law to discuss the socio-legal processes of migration and the experiences of refugee and asylum-seeking families and children. A number of themes including family separation / re-unification, detention of minors, everyday (in)security, integration, and belonging are explored within a broader framework of a ‘hostile environment’ as a consequence of increasingly restrictive immigration controls.

Please join us at our Egham Campus, Shilling Lecture Theatre on 23rd January 2019 from 1.30-5pm followed by drinks and nibbles.

This is a special event organized by the Families & Children Research Cluster in the School of Law, Royal Holloway University of London.

Programme:

Dr Pinar Canga - “Immigration Detention of Minors in the United Kingdom and Turkey: Assessing the Predictive Value of Human Rights Compliance Theory”.

Dr Mastoureh Fathi - “Home, Pedagogy and Belonging: Exploring Afghan women’s 'extension of home' in London”.

Prof Ravinder Barn - “Unaccompanied migrant children in Sicily: caught between international and humanitarian ideals and nativist populism”.

Discussant: Dr Simon Behrman - “The EU as a ‘Hostile Environment’”.
