- This course "is structured to allow participants to interactively analyze and compare the historical development of human rights and refugee law and policy in its origin, historical development and theory and its current practice in the United States, Italy and the European Union by examining leading texts, current legislation, policy and case law from each jurisdiction. The course aims to evaluate and discuss legal and social mechanisms that could improve respect for human rights and the treatment of immigrants, which can then be promulgated and implemented in practical work forums"; registration deadline is 15 March 2014.

A Sea of Troubles? Problematising Migration Law, 2014 Migration & Law Network Conference, London, 28-29 March 2014 [info]
- "The overall theme of our 2014 conference is the fluidity of migration law, in the face of its own contradictions, and multiple contextual, political and legal challenges. At the conference, we would like to give teachers, researchers and research students the opportunity to present their work, in a supportive environment, within this broad perspective"; registration now open.

CFP: Refugee Protection Outside of the International Legal Framework: Expanding Cross-national and Cross-disciplinary Collaborations, Evanston, IL, 27-28 May 2014 [info]

The Center for Forced Migration Studies at Northwestern University invites submissions for a two-day workshop designed to promote cross-disciplinary discussion and engage researchers, practitioners and policy makers in the theoretical and practical issues, the lessons to be learned and the strategies for achieving protection in these states, about which we know far too little"; deadline for abstracts is 1 April 2014.
