Informatie- en verdiepingsbijeenkomst : trauma’s bij vluchtelingen, 30 mei 19.30-21.30 A’ dam

Vluchtelingen zijn vaak afkomstig uit landen waar burgeroorlogen woeden en/of mensenrechten worden geschonden. In hun land van herkomst, tijdens de reis hiernaar toe en soms ook nog in Nederland hebben zij vaak ingrijpende gebeurtenissen meegemaakt, waaronder geweld of seksueel misbruik. Dit kan tot ernstige psychische en somatische klachten leiden.

Op deze verdiepingsavond gaan we dieper in op de vraag hoe groot het probleem is, wat de trauma’s zijn waar mensen mee kampen, hoe zij het beste geholpen kunnen worden én wat er nodig is binnen het vluchtelingenbeleid om verdere traumatisering te voorkomen.
De avond wordt georganiseerd door het ASKV mede naar aanleiding van het zesjarig bestaan van het Medisch Opvangproject Ongedocumenteerden (MOO), dat in 2011 werd opgericht.

Locatie: Verzetsmuseum te Amsterdam. van 19.30 tot 21.30, inloop vanaf 19.00.
Gelieve u aan te melden via aanmelden@askv.nl

Summer School: Migration and the (Inter-)National Order of Things, 12-19juni Bergen (Noorwegen)

This interdisciplinary course aims to deepen the understanding of the politics of protection and control of contemporary migration. It asks: How are migrants given different bureaucratic and legal identities (e.g. refugees, stateless persons, irregular migrants) and what are the consequences of such distinctions and labels? What protection does international law and humanitarian institutions offer to different categories of people? What are the spatial, temporal and gendered implications of the protection and control practices aimed at migrants?  And, how are the legal and bureaucratic identities, and institutions of migration control, challenged by migrants themselves?
This course introduces PhD candidates to key concepts, cross-cutting research and analysis in the fields of law, anthropology, human geography and political science. It offers lectures by leading migration scholars, student presentations, role plays, film screenings and a possibility of writing an academic paper, enabling the participant to earn 10 credits.

Summer School: Forced Migration and Asylum: a Multidisciplinary Approach, 3-8 July Bologna (It)

The Summer School, organised by two organisations active on the frontline of reception and integration of asylum seekers and supported by several public and private partners working in the field, will investigate a broad range of fundamental issues associated with the current phenomenon of forced migration adopting a methodological approach that is rooted in praxis.

Geopolitical, anthropological and cultural analysis of Countries of origin, labour integration of refugees in the European Member States, mental health and the treatment of illnesses caused by traumatic events experienced during the migration journey, are just some of the topics that will be analysed and discussed during the School. Lectures and seminars will be completed with field visits to reception centres, offering interventions and training about how reception and integration initiatives are conducted in the field.

Summer School ‘CULTURES, MIGRATIONS, BORDERS’ 4-13 july LESVOS, GREECE

The broader socioeconomic and political transformations in Africa and Asia have recently resulted in increased migration flows to Greece and, more generally, to Europe. Being at the crossroads of populations and cultures the islands of Eastern Aegean have served as one of the entry “gates” to Europe. In this context, and especially in connection to the current crisis, border crossings have become the focus of intense debates as they are intertwined with issues of culture and identity formation, the European Union and state policy, and constructions of 'otherness'. By drawing on an increasing interest in the study of cultures, migrations and borders, our Summer School examines how migrations shape and are shaped by processes of boundary formation in a variety of cultural encounters.

Conference: The Radical Rural  ‘peripheral’ geographies of migrant activism, 5 juli Exeter

There is a tendency for activist groups and academics working across areas of migration, global justice and refugee activism to conduct their work in 'centralised' geographical zones such as major cities and towns, including areas of high ethnic diversity, prime dispersal areas for refugees, or places where activist networks are well established. In this one day workshop we will explore what it means to be politically active in areas considered to be peripheral or unexpected, and how and why they are significant as spaces where state practices and border control might be contested in novel ways.

Summer School: People on the move in an evolving Europe. EU Law and Policy on Mobility, Migration and Asylum, Fribourg, August 21-25, 2017

The freedom of movement and residence for persons is one of the cornerstones of the European Union. Therefore the regulation of the mobility of economically active citizens of EU Member States and their family members  has been one of the core activities of the EU policy- and law-makers which has led to the introduction of EU citizenship with the Maastricht Treaty in 1992. However, freedom of movement is not an uncontested principle – as recent events have clearly shown. Added to this is a growing concern regarding migratory movements of Third Country Nationals to Member States of the European Union: either as labor migrants, in the form of family reunification, or as applicants for international protection. The EU and its Member States currently face the challenge of having to find a way forward within the legal and political frameworks existing in Europe. This year’s summer school aims at adressing this challenge from different perspectives.
