It will examine journeys without justice or safety and it will debate solutions to the problems of forced migration. It will explore the blurred boundaries between those migrants who are forced to work in conditions akin to slavery and those who migrate because of persecution, have their asylum claims denied, and end up in utterly exploitative and/or illegal working conditions." Conference abstracts must be submitted by 30 October 2009.
