Criminal Justice Adjudication and Migration
Ana Aliverti together with Mary Bosworth (Oxford) are organising an international workshop on ‘Criminal Justice Adjudication in the Age of Migration’. The workshop, generously funded by the British Academy, will be held next 17th and 18th of March 2016 at the University of Oxford. It will bring together leading international scholars and early career researchers from various countries, doctoral students, and British policy makers and practitioners to shed light on the relevance of citizenship and immigration status in criminal justice decision-making.
Despite a burgeoning literature, we know very little about the quantitative and qualitative changes to the criminal justice system brought about by mass migration and its control, nor how such developments vary across jurisdictions. The workshop will involve presentations of original papers by both established academics and early career researchers working on this area from a broad range of disciplines. It will offer a unique opportunity to share and exchange experiences, ideas and challenges of conducting research in this area in different jurisdictions within a small, select and specialised audience.
If you are interested in attending the workshop please email firstname.lastname@example.org outlining your doctoral research and the reasons why you would like to attend. Since places are limited, Ana and Mary select students whose research would benefit most from attending the workshop.
