The Research Group on International Law and Governance in collaboration with the Research Group on Human Rights, Armed Conflict, and Law of Peace & Security, and the Peace Research Institute of Oslo (PRIO) are organising an interdisciplinary conference on migration with the title "Vulnerability, Protection, and Agency". It will be held at the Faculty of Law, University of Oslo, Norway on May 24-25, 2018.

What?

The conference explores the theme of migration and welcomes perspectives from law and the social sciences (including geography, anthropology, sociology, criminology, and international relations). Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. The organisers call for paper proposals from scholars, policy makers, or practitioners, at different stages of their careers, Phd candidates, post-docs, and professors. Topics may include: accountability mechanisms for extra-territorial action by States, IOs, NGOs, and corporate actors, ways towards de-construction of walls (literal and metaphorical), new interpretations for protection standards across or beyond normative regimes.
