IFFR Filmfestival, met oa: We are from there, 24-31jan Rotterdam

Jamil en Milad zijn broers met zeer verschillende persoonlijkheden. Als hun vaderland Syrië steeds verder wegzakt in een burgeroorlog, vertekken ze allebei, maar elk op eigen manier.

De reizen van de broers worden vastgelegd door neef Wissam. Hij toont het effect van ontworteling op de broers, die voorheen amper gereisd hadden.

Presentation: Migration, Mobility and Development in Africa, 27jan 15:30-17u, VU A’dam

Elieth Eyebiyi is one of the editors of two bilingual (English/French) edited volumes on migration, mobility and development in Africa. This publication addresses migration and mobility in Africa, which is much more important than migration towards Europe in terms of numbers, but also economically and historically. Intra-African migration is badly understudied. Migration is analysed in the larger context of mobility, and in its relation to family strategies and development. In contrast to ideas that dominate migration studies (migration contributes to development, development may reduce 'irregular' migration), and studies migration in its own right. The contributions have been written by African academics.

Debat: Refugees Exploited, 28jan 20u de Zwijger A’dam

Migrants, rejected asylumseekers, refugees with a Dublinclaim who have no status often end up in a vulnerable position in the Netherlands due to their legal, social and medical situation. Especially the refugees with a Dublinclaim are systematically excluded from aid and shelter because the Netherlands appoints them to the countries where this group entered Europe first, mostly countries in the south such as Italy and Spain. As a result, they often end up on the streets in precarious and exploitative situations that have already started outside of the Netherlands. This evening we will discuss the situation with researchers, human rights organizations and stakeholders from Amsterdam and Italy.

Debat: How does film raise awareness about migration and refugees?, 31jan 20u Humanity House den Haag

Films and documentaries are often about subjects that speak to the social consciousness of its audience. These are stories taken from real life that stimulate the audience to look outside of their own bubble. Migrant cinema also does this. Which role can this genre play in raising awareness about migration and refugees? This will be discussed during the first edition of Bubble Breaker.

The program starts with a screening of the short movie Gifts from Babylon. This short movie is about illegal immigration from Africa to Europe. It explores the traumatic impact that African-EU migration has on the migrants and the community it leaves behind. The story is told from the perspective of a Gambian migrant that returns to his homeland. After five years of illegally living in Europe, coming home evokes a reaction from his environment.

Afterwards, director Bas Ackermann and leading actor Christoper Tijan Smith, will discuss the movie.

Symposium JWS: Mensenhandel signaleren, 28feb 13:30-17:00u Amnesty Amsterdam

Het symposium beoogt artsen en andere zorgverleners alert te maken op signalen van mensenhandel en handvatten te geven hoe te handelen bij vermoeden van mensenhandel.

In Nederland verstaat men onder mensenhandel het werven (voor werk), vervoeren of huisvesten van iemand met gebruik van dwang, geweld, misleiding of misbruik makende van zijn of haar kwetsbare positie met als doel iemands inkomsten af te nemen of niet uit te betalen (uitbuiting).
Het aantal slachtoffers van mensenhandel in Nederland schat men op 6.250 per jaar. Daarbij blijft veel mensenhandel, dus veel leed verborgen. Ongeveer een derde van de slachtoffers heeft de Nederlandse nationaliteit. Steeds vaker zijn jongeren het slachtoffer. Op dit moment is zelfs de helft van de slachtoffers minderjarig. Het grootste deel betreft gedwongen prostitutie cq. Loverboyproblematiek.

Conference Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Claims of Asylum: 7-8 July Sussex, Brighton (UK).

The SOGICA project aims to produce the necessary evidence base for a more just and humane asylum process for individuals seeking refuge in Europe on the basis of their SOGI.

To this end, since 2016, the project has studied the social and legal experiences of SOGI asylum claimants across Europe, by exploring the European Union (EU) and Council of Europe (CoE) frameworks and by focusing on Germany, Italy and the UK as case studies. During this time, SOGICA has carried out more than 150 interviews and focus group discussions with asylum claimants, refugees, decision-makers, practitioners, and experts in the field, and has conducted observations of hearings of SOGI claimants in courts and tribunals. The team has produced a number of publications on different aspects of SOGI asylum (such as credibility, persecution, discretion, domestic and European adjudication of these claims) and made presentations at conferences and seminars across Europe. A database of materialswebsite of resources and network of more than 1,000 friends and allies beyond academia has been established. The SOGICA project will conclude in 2020 with the publication of a monograph and further peer-reviewed articles, all of which are intended to inform fairer SOGI asylum processes in Europe and greater sensitivity and humanity for SOGI minorities outside the legal process.

Registration deadline is 30 April 2020.
Conference registration is free. However, we are keen to provide bursaries to enable some project participants – asylum claimants, refugees and activists – to take part. We are therefore creating a bursary fund.
