On Tuesday 19 November the Melbourne Social Equity Institute, together with the Peter McMullin Centre on Statelessness, will present a one-day conference exploring migration, refugee studies and statelessness.

This event builds on the tradition of the Researchers for Asylum Seekers Conference which ran at the University of Melbourne for over a decade. It provides an opportunity for graduate and early career researchers, as well as practitioners and policy makers working in the field, to present their work, meet with other researchers and to discuss their research with an engaged, interdisciplinary audience.

Please email social-equity@unimelb.edu.au to request an Accessible Word version of the Program.

Sessions at the conference will cover topics including:

  • policy and place
  • education and youth
  • human rights and seeking asylum
  • health and vulnerabilities

Bookings are essential.

The Kwong Lee Dow building's accessible entrance is located on Leicester Street. To discuss any accessibility requirements, please get in touch via social-equity@unimelb.edu.au or +61 3 8344 7603.
