The Spirit of International Solidarity, the Right to Asylum, and the Response to Displacement – An Interdisciplinary Symposium.
To be held 14-15 February 2019, La Trobe University, City Campus, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
In 1980, the High Commissioner for Refugees, Poul Hartling wrote that “there is hardly a single subsequent resolution of the General Assembly relating to the work of my Office which does not contain some reference to the importance of international solidarity in seeking solutions to the refugee problem.” By 2010, a survey by the independent expert on human rights and international solidarity, Rudi Muhammad Rizki, found that “There is a large gap between assertions of international solidarity in theory and their reflection in practice.” This two-day symposium pursues the question of whether the notion of international or global solidarity was ever reflected in practice. We invite contributions from a range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences: historians as well as international relations experts; international legal scholars as well as political theorists. We expect the symposium to result in an academic publication, such as a special issue of a refereed journal or an edited book.
Please submit an abstract (500 words max) and a brief biographical note (100 words max) by 15 June 2018. Notice of acceptance will be given on 15 July. Completed papers to be circulated by 15 December 2018. Email abstracts and bio to: [log in to unmask] For further inquiries: [log in to unmask]
