Centre for Refugee Studies at York University, Toronto
Annual Student Conference: Call for Abstracts

Increasing the Securitization of Borders and the Politics of Forced 
Migration: The Global Rise of Anti-Refugee Reform

April 29-30, 2011

The Centre for Refugee Studies (CRS) Student Caucus is pleased to 
announce that the Annual Student Conference will take place on April 
29th and 30th at York University, Toronto, Canada. This event offers 
graduate and undergraduate students across disciplines with a keen 
interest in migration and refugee issues the opportunity to present and 
discuss their research ideas with fellow students, academics, 
professionals, frontline practitioners, researchers, scholars and all 
those interested in forced migration issues.

Canada has been recently shaken by a backlash against refugees. This 
fall the Conservative federal government introduced Bill C-49, an Act 
that seeks to deter human smuggling but ultimately criminalizes migrants 
seeking refuge in Canada.  Not only does the Act strongly discourage 
asylum seekers from coming to Canada, but if they do arrive, they are 
homogeneously considered ‘irregular’ asylum seekers, and are subject to 
mandatory unreviewable detention, and face limits on their refugee 
appeal, healthcare services, family reunification rights, and so forth. 
  Bill C-49 is just one, among many, pieces of proposed legislation that 
works to restrict the rights and freedoms of displaced peoples.  The aim 
of this conference is to explore and interrogate key issues and concerns 
around the broad topic of the increasing securitization of borders and 
the politics of forced migration. We hope to reveal some of the lived 
experiences, NGO/grassroots advocacy, theoretical research premises, and 
practical policies that could help challenge and bring social justice to 
vulnerable groups of people involved in the forced migration process. To 
address these and other key issues, the wide-ranging theme for this 
year’s conference is Increasing the Securitization of Borders and the 
Politics of Forced Migration: The Global Rise of Anti-Refugee Reform. 
This overarching theme seeks to embrace a comprehensive and 
interdisciplinary discussion of forced human migration.  We welcome you 
to submit proposals on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

  * Forced Migration and The Refugee Process
  * State Boundaries and Sovereignty
  * International Human Rights of Migrants
  * Gender and The Politics of Identity and Forced Migration
  * Racialization and Forced Migration
  * Children and Refugee Youth
  *  Social and Settlement Services (i.e., healthcare, housing, 
employment, etc.)
  * Environment and Climate Change
  * Human Trafficking and Smuggling
  * "Irregular" Migration

Submissions that fall under the category of visual, audio, and 
performing arts are also welcome. All acceptable art submissions will be 
exhibited at the conference location. Group/panel submissions are also 
invited.

A selection of the top completed papers presented at the conference will 
be published in a journal of conference proceedings.
