II UNU-GCM Conference on Statelessness and Transcontinental Migration


  • DATE / TIME:
    2014•07•24 - 2014•07•25

    This conference focuses on a range of issues related to the wellbeing and recognition of people who traverse continents devoid of citizenship. Issues related to refugees remain crucially unanswered in debates and policies surrounding migration. In the wake of acknowledgement within the academy that it is not always possible to isolate refugees from migrants, this conference analyses a range of contexts where dignity and human rights are compromised through the absence of legal and political recognition. By focusing on situations of extreme vulnerability and on lives lived on the borderline, this conference seeks to articulate and address urgent needs with regard to the stateless migrants who have entered Europe.


    Keynote speakers:

    Professor Eduard Sagarra i Trias, ‘The Necessity of Immigration in the Globalized World’, President of the United Nations Associations of Spain (ANUE), Barcelona / University of Barcelona

    Professor Khadija Elmadmad, ‘Statelessness and Migration: The Case of de facto and de jure stateless children in Morocco’, Director of The UNESCO Centre, The Law and Migration (CUDM), Rabat
