Call for Papers - Terrorism and Asylum Workshop
CALL FOR PAPERS:
Workshop: ‘Terrorism and Asylum’
Refugee Law Initiative, University of London
Friday 8 December 2017
Fears that refugee flows may facilitate the entry of terrorist elements are amply demonstrated by State responses to the refugee crises in Syria and Iraq. Such concerns about the prevalence of terrorism in today’s world have direct consequences for the legal protection of refugees and asylum-seekers. This one-day workshop convened by the Refugee Law Initiative aims to promote reflection on links between ‘terrorism’ and ‘asylum’ on the part of scholars and practitioners working in these separate fields.
Selection decisions will be returned by Monday 30 October 2017. Participants, including presenters, are responsible for making their own visa, travel and accommodation arrangements and will be required to pay the small registration fee to cover the cost of refreshments and lunch.
