Creation, imagination, speculation: age assessment and the asylum procedure

Description

Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2014. Seminar by Professor Gregor Noll (Lund University) recorded on 5 March 2014 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. Asylum applications by young persons may raise the question whether the applicant is a minor or not. Being a minor offers advantages in the asylum procedure, such as access to procedural benefits and safeguards, the exemption from removal to other EU Member States under the Dublin Regulation, and a much higher likelihood of being granted protection as an ?unaccompanied minor?. Host states are interested in limiting the group to which those advantages apply so as to minimise costs and to avoid what has been termed ?pull effects? on future asylum seekers. In cases where applicants arrive witho Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Here, man is nothing: Gendered tensions and male failed asylum seekers

Description

Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2013. Seminar by Melanie Griffiths (COMPAS) recorded on 6 March 2013 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. It has been said that refugees are approached through depoliticised and dehistoricised eyes, to which we might add 'ungendered'. This seminar considers gender as an unspoken but critical dimension of the creation and management of the category of failed asylum seeker. Drawing from qualitative research conducted with male failed asylum seekers in the UK, it explores the interplay of gender with asylum protection practices. This will include looking at mechanisms of emasculation, as well as what implications the ideological construct of the 'genuine' refugee has on how those refused protection are imagined.

When is an asylum seeker not an asylum seeker? The representation of immigration in the UK press 1996-2005

Description

Paul Baker talks about how asylums seekers and refugees were presented in the national press and the variations in discourses over time and across types of press. As migration to the UK has increased in number over the past decade or more, it has become a highly salient, heavily contested political issue as well. Migration as an 'issue' is now a focal point for British public opinion, media coverage, and political debate. This term's seminar examines the relationships among these elements. We will examine how migration is represented in the media, and how media consumption can in turn construct the migrant experience as well. We will examine how various segments of the British public understand migration as a political issue, and how migration may be in turn transforming British politi Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

What is migration policy for?

Description

Sarah Spencer, COMPAS, Oxford University, gives a talk for the COMPAS Breakfast Briefing series. David Cameron, speaking in April, said that 'immigration is a hugely emotive subject . . . and it's a debate too often in the past shaped by assertions rather than substantive arguments... (We need) to cut through the extremes of this debate and approach the subject sensibly and reasonably.' The first in COMPAS's 2011/12 Breakfast Briefing series suggests how we might do this. It explores the following questions: What are the pressures and constraints that have shaped this rapidly shifting policy terrain? How can we assess the trade-offs involved in our policy options? What could be the foundation for a less polarised, better-informed public debate? Do we need to start by seeking consensus 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/

THEMIS: Violence, surveillance and agency experiences of the women refugees in the Italian reception camps

Description

Barbara Pinelli presents her paper 'Violence, surveillance and agency experiences of the women refugees in the Italian reception camps' in Parallel session IV(C) of the conference Examining Migration Dynamics: Networks and Beyond, 24-26 Sept 2013 This paper focuses on the relation between agency and the process of becoming refugees. In the last four years, I have carried out an ethnographic research in southern Italy refugee camps organized by the Italian government for the detention and control of undocumented migrants, in order to document the violence experiences of women asylum seekers who have reached Italy after spending a period of time in Libya, and crossing the Mediterranean Sea. These women have endured terrible abuses in their trajectory toward Europe; once inside the camps, t

THEMIS: What kind of asylum and which destination? Afghan asylum seekers transiting from Greece

Description

Angeliki Dimitriadi presents her paper 'What kind of asylum and which destination? Afghan asylum seekers transiting from Greece' in Parallel session IV(D) of the conference Examining Migration Dynamics: Networks and Beyond, 24-26 Sept 2013 The paper discusses Afghan asylum seekers in Greece and how migrant agency factors in the context of transit from Greece to other EU member states. Labeled in public discourse as transit migrants, I argue that their mobility, when successfully pursued, is more than the sum of structural constraints; they are not only escaping from specific factors but simultaneously pursuing specific conditions. Thus, an element of choice and active participation in the migratory journey is incorporated in the discussion on asylum. The paper draws from two sources, the

Description

Jan-Paul Brekke presents his paper 'Stuck in transit: the Dublin regulation, national discrepancies & secondary migration of asylum seekers' co-authored by Grete Brochmann in Parallel session III(D) of the conference Examining Migration Dynamics Tensions related to a harmonization of EUs asylum policies are reinforced by the current economic crisis. In this paper we look at the interplay between the Dublin Regulation, national discrepancies in asylum policies and individual migrants' strategies. We study mechanisms in the interaction between the supranational, the national and the individual level. The empirical focal point is bilateral secondary migration between Italy and Norway. Interviews with Eritrean migrants, with NGO personnel and government representatives in the two countries

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/

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. While the then Attorney General stated Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/
