Our workshop ‘Refugees, New Speakers, and Global Law’ in Tilburg University, March 23-24 2017, is fast approaching. Please see our final event programme attached.
After the event we will post podcasts of the presentations and the plenaries from Max Spotti 'Language and asylum: the paradox of naming places and web truths' and Marcos Ezequiel Filardi 'Accomplishments, challenges and tensions in refugees´ protection in Argentina'. Through the presentations we will discuss how the law experienced through themes related to rights, protections, and voice and legality. We will also see language and legitimacy as central to this experience as we explore the issues of language learning, refugees voices through literature and as they are documented in historical narratives. Through the inclusion of community-led NGOs, refugees and other practitioners who work on asylum issues, we will finally consider how we as researchers can create impact.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming the presenters and participants to Tilburg University next week.
