‘Refugee Protection in a Hostile World?’
3rd Annual Conference, Refugee Law Initiative, University of London
18 - 19 July 2018
The 3rd Annual Conference of the Refugee Law Initiative (RLI) will be held on Wednesday 18 July and Thursday 19 July 2018 at the Senate House of the University of London.
2. OPEN THEME
Many other panel slots will be open to ANY topic on law, policy and practice relating to refugees, stateless persons and forced migrants. They offer a platform for a broader range of high-quality research in this field. Proposals to these panels can be for law, policy or practice at the international level, in the UK and Europe, or in any other country or region.
For this year alone, please note that papers on internally displaced persons (IDPs) should instead be submitted to the special one-day Workshop on IDPs the following day.
3. CALL FOR PROPOSALS – PAPERS, PANELS AND POSTERS
The selection committee is pleased to invite paper (max. 300 words) and panel proposals (of 3-4 papers) for ‘thematic’ and ‘open’ panels. Please indicate clearly in the subject line of your email whether your proposal relates to the ‘thematic’ or the ‘open’ panels and whether it is for a single paper or a panel. Selection is competitive and proposals will be chosen based on quality, relevance to the field and (for ‘open’ panels) coherence with other submissions.
We also invite proposals for poster presentations during the evening reception on the first day. This is a space that newer researchers, taught students, etc. may find more suitable for presenting research through poster presentations. High-quality proposals not accepted for the panel sessions may be offered a place on the poster session. Please indicate in the subject line of your email if you are proposing a poster.
Please send all proposals – whether for a paper or panel - to email@example.com. Deadline for submission is Monday 22 January 2018. A decision will be returned by Monday 19 February 2018. The decision of the selection committee is final.
Proposals are welcomed from researchers at all stages in their careers.
