SLS Migration and Asylum Law Section: Call for Papers
2015 SLS Annual Conference at University of York
This is a call for papers for the Migration and Asylum Law section of the 2015 SLS Annual Conference to be held at the University of York from Tuesday 1st September – Friday 4th September. The Migration Law section will meet in the first half of the conference on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd September.
This year's theme, 'Law's Subjects: Subject to Law', has been chosen to mark the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta 1215, as well as the 250th anniversary of Entick v Carrington.
We welcome proposals for papers on any issue relating to the area of migration and asylum law, including those addressing this year's conference theme, considering migrants and refugees as law’s subjects and/or subject to law. You may address maters on national, regional or international level. Alternatively, if you would like to propose a topic of current interest for a panel or roundtable discussion, please, do get in touch to see if this can be arranged.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please, submit an abstract (250 words approx.) by Friday 20th March.
All abstracts must be submitted through the EasyChair conference system which can be accessed using the following link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sls2015. If for any reason the weblink does not work, please, cut and paste the web address into your internet browser. If you have not used EasyChair system before, you will need to create an account before making your submission. Instructions are available on the website. This is a quick and easy process, but, please, do let us know if you experience any problems.
Please, note that whilst you need only send a proposed title and abstract at this stage, speakers are encouraged to submit a full paper via EasyChair before the conference. The SLS offers a Best Paper Prize, which can be awarded to academics at any stage of their career. The Prize carries a £250 monetary award and winning papers are published in Legal Studies.
To be eligible:
• speakers must be fully paid-up members of the SLS;
• papers must not exceed 11,000 words including footnotes (as counted in Word); and
• papers must not have been published previously or have been accepted or be under consideration for publication.
• This year´s deadline for receiving the papers is 24 August 2015.
We have also been asked to remind you that all speakers will need to register to attend the conference. Booking information will be circulated in due course.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts,
With all best wishes,
Dr Violeta Moreno-Lax, Queen Mary, University of London, Co-Convenor.
Dr Diego Acosta Arcarazo, University of Bristol, Co-Convenor.
