Governing Refugees: Justice, Order, and Legal Plauralism on the Thai-Burma Border [Book event]

Description

Seminar given on 29 October 2014 by Dr Kirsten McConnachie (Refugee Studies Centre), part of the RSC Michaelmas term 2014 Public Seminar Series. Refugee camps are imbued in the public imagination with assumptions of anarchy, danger and refugee passivity. 'Governing Refugees: Justice, Order and Legal Pluralism' marshals empirical data and ethnographic detail to challenge such assumptions, arguing that refugee camps should be recognised as spaces where social capital can not only survive, but thrive. In this talk, Dr McConnachie examines themes of community governance, order maintenance and legal pluralism in the context of refugee camps on the Thailand-Burma border. The nature of a refugee situation is such that multiple actors take a role in camp management, creating a complex governanc Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Survival migration: failed governance and the crisis of displacement

Description

Public Seminar Series, Michaelmas term 2013. Seminar by Dr Alexander Betts (University of Oxford) recorded on 16 October 2013 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. The talk, based on Betts new book, will explore the challenge of responding to new drivers of cross-border displacement that fall outside the existing refugee framework. Rather than beginning with particular causes of displacement, whether environmental change, food insecurity or generalized violence, it offers a human rights-based framework through which to critically consider who, in a changing world, should be entitled to cross an international border and seek asylum. Based on extensive fieldwork, it grounds its analysis in an exploration of contemporary flight from three of the most fra Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Immigration and welfare chauvinism: Britain since 1800

Description

Professor David Feldman, historian, describes the "welfare chauvinism" existing in Britain since the 18th century. By this he means that welfare systems were maintained but reformed so as to exclude 'outsiders' (internal and international migrants). He refers to Britain's 'poor law' and the development of the welfare system up to the late 1990's, to include or exclude migrants. He also discusses the argument that welfare states need to be founded in a 'homogenous' society, and that that homogeneity is institutionalised. Migration scholars and NGOs have often sought to disassociate popular associations between criminality and immigration: migrants are not criminals, nor are they necessarily more likely to commit crime. But this risks ignoring important relationships between immig Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Identification and mobility Control: Police sciences, technology, and international cooperation in West Europe, 1900-1930

Description

Dr. Ilsen About takes us through the fascinating development of technology used by police in the early 1900's to allow for the identification of criminals internationally, known as 'distant identification'. This development began before the establishment Interpol's forerunner. The attempt to develop an international language and index to identify criminals that were moving across borders saw several ups and downs. Migration scholars and NGOs have often sought to disassociate popular associations between criminality and immigration: migrants are not criminals, nor are they necessarily more likely to commit crime. But this risks ignoring important relationships between immigration and criminality, both 'immigrant' and 'criminal' for example, are set in opposition to the (good) citiz Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Description

Three asylum paradigms

Description

Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2014. Seminar by Jean-François Durieux (RSC and the Graduate Institute, Geneva) recorded on 12 February 2014 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. What special sense of duty connects us to those people whom we call refugees, and how does this duty translate into asylum? What does the practice of asylum tell us about who we are, as individuals as well as members of political communities? How does one morally justify the special concern we feel for, and consequently the privileged treatment we give, refugees as compared with other foreigners in need? Revisiting the main features of the ethical debate over asylum and refugeehood, Mr Durieux argues that there cannot be one coherent set of answers to these questions, be Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

The child in international refugee law

Description

Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2014. Seminar by Jason Pobjoy (Blackstone Chambers) recorded on 5 February 2014 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. International law has played an important role in advancing the rights of refugee children. In this seminar Mr Pobjoy considers how international refugee law and international law on the rights of the child might be creatively aligned to respond to the reality that a child seeking international protection is both a child and a refugee. Specifically, he examines three contexts ? defined as ?modes of interaction? ? where the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) might be engaged to assist in determining the status of a child seeking international protection. First, the CRC may provide proc Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

At the end of the rainbow: where next for the LGBTI refugee?

Description

Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2014. Seminar by S. Chelvan (No5 Chambers) recorded on 22 January 2014 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. Following the heralded 2010 landmark judgment of the UK Supreme Court in HJ (Iran) and HT (Cameroon), the LGBTI refugee has faced a culture of disbelief, which has led in some instances to filming, or photographing of sexual acts, to ?prove? identity. Analysing his DSSH (Difference, Stigma, Shame and Harm) model, endorsed by UNHCR, and adopted by both New Zealand and Sweden, Mr Chelvan tackles directly the main hurdle facing LGBTI refugees, ie, proving refugee status based on actual, or perceived sexual or gender identity, within a humane investigatory framework. Mr Chelvan then shifts the focus of status Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Refugee rights: beyond the 1951 Convention

Description

Annual Harrell-Bond Lecture 2014 by Professor Yakin Ertürk (former UN Special Rapporteur on Violence Against Women) recorded on 20 November 2013 at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History In this lecture, Professor Yakin Erturk speaks on the role of UN mandates in the protection of the human rights of women asylum seekers. Professor Erturk poses the question: Can the protection which States recognise for Convention refugees be extended to others (eg, women) in need of international protection? Arguing that entitlement to protection under international law applies whether for Convention refugees or otherwise, Erturk draws on her experiences as UN Special Rapporteur on Violence Against Women to outline the evolving women?s rights agenda and the challenges and obstacles that lie ah Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Panellists Kim Scriven, Humanitarian Innovation Fund, Pascal Daudin, ICRC, Johan Karlsson, Better Shelter. Chair: Marpe Tanaka, MSF Sweden Innovation Unit. For emergency-oriented organisations in the humanitarian sector, responding quickly to rapidly emerging crisis situations is absolutely crucial. However, a major challenge facing humanitarian organizations is how to maintain a balance between addressing short-term needs and building an innovation capability to meet long-term challenges. The emergency-oriented mind-set often leads to prioritization of short-term problem solving and neglects the exploration of long-term challenges and opportunities for innovation Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

THEMIS: Remaining subjects despite structural constraints: migratory strategies among refugees hosted in Italy after their expulsion from Libya

Description

Gabriele Tomei presents his paper 'Remaining subjects despite structural constraints: migratory strategies among refugees hosted in Italy after their expulsion from Libya' in parallel session IV (C) of the Examining Migration Dynamics conference During the 2011 Lybian crisis, Gheddafi decided to expel many African and Asiatic workers, forcing them to illegally migrate to Italy as a reaction to the government support of the international military intervention against his regime. As a consequence of that mass expulsion, and under the menace of the regime army, more than 30.0000 refugee arrived in Italy where they all have been requested to seek for refugee status and, consequently, they have been hosted for months into special centres, waiting for the conclusion of the application process

Turning wrongful convictions into rights? Asylum seekers and the criminal law

Description

Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2014. Seminar by Dr Ana Aliverti (Warwick School of Law) recorded on 29 January 2014 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. Fifteen years have passed since the High Court delivered the ground-breaking decision in Adimi [1999], in which Lord Justice Brown called attention to the scarce observance of Article 31 of the Refugee Convention in domestic criminal proceedings against asylum seekers arriving in Britain, or en route to another country, without proper documents. In response to the judgment, the British Parliament incorporated section 31 in the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, providing for a defence for refugees against certain criminal charges under a number of conditions.

Description

Part 2 of 3 of a series of podcasts from the special workshop 'The Arab Uprisings: Displacement and Migration', held at the Oxford Department of International Development on 16 May 2014 The aim of this workshop was to investigate the relation between migration and revolts. Some of the questions that were addressed include: What is the theoretical link between emigration, immigration and revolts? What have been the short-term and long-term impacts of the uprisings on mobility, migration and displacement in the Middle East and North Africa region in terms of patterns and trends and of institutional responses to movements induced by the Arab Uprising? What has been the impact of the Uprisings on broader processes of social change in the region? Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

African Studies and OCAF Seminar: Staying Out of Place: The Dialectics of Being and Becoming in Exceptional Spaces

Description

Simon Turner, Aalborg University, Denmark, gives a talk for the African Studies Centre Based on ethnographic fieldwork in two exceptional spaces, namely among Burundian refugees living clandestinely in Nairobi and living in a refugee camp in Tanzania, the article argues that displacement can be about staying out of place in order to find a place in the world in the future and is therefore closely linked to temporarily and temporariness. I suggest that the term dis-placement described this sense of not only being out of place but also being en route to a future. Burundians in the camp and the city are doing their best to remain out of place, in transition between a lost past and a future yet to come, and the temporary nature of their sojourn is maintained in everyday practices so that they Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/
