How law shapes the inclusion and exclusion of refugees

Insights from Canada and Norway

The University of Bergen (UiB) is hosting a seminar, “The Legal Production of Migrant Precarity: Insights from Canada and Norway”, on Tuesday 26 April from 12:00 to 2:00PM looking at how law shapes the inclusion and exclusion of refugees and other migrants in Canada and Norway.

The seminar will be based on presentations by Associate Professor Delphine Nakache from the University of Ottawa and Postdoctoral Researcher Jessica Schultz from UiB and the Chr. Michelsen Institute, who have worked together on the Horizon 2020 project VULNER (Vulnerability in the Global Protection Regime: How Does the Law Assess, Address, Shape and Produce the Vulnerabilities of the Protection Seekers?).

Fredrikke Moldenæs, PhD candidate from the University of Tromsø, will also join the seminar to reflect on how vulnerability theory may or may not be useful in conceptualising migrant precarity.
