Migration policies in the Mediterranean and Libya: Conference

Vincent Chetail has been invited to take part in the round-table – Migration Policy “as organised Crime”?

He will be addressing issues drawn upon his pioneering work on international criminal law as a tool for sanctioning abuses against migrants  (Is There any Blood on my Hands? Deportation as a Crime of International Law PDF 250K).

This presentation is part of the “Migration policies in the Mediterranean and Libya: Roundtables on Crimes, Victims and the rule of International Law” conference taking place at Sciences Po, Paris, Wednesday 12 of February bringing together practitioners and academics to debate the role of law in governing migration. It will particularly reflect upon il/legalising practices and the making of “victims” and “criminals”. In a context of continuous migrants deaths and dismantlement of search and rescue operations led by states or NGOs.
Driving this event is an overarching question:
Will migration governance finally be negotiated in courts?
The conference is organised by researchers of the European Research project MAGYC, the ANR project PACE and in partnership with the Paris school of international relations.
