Summer School on Development Aid and Migration | University of Nottingham Human Rights Law Centre, Nottingham, UK | 24 – 28 June 2019

The University of Nottingham Human Rights Law Centre will hold a Summer School on Development Aid and Migration from 24-28 June 2019. This expert-led programme is aimed at students, researchers and academics, human rights defenders, and practitioners working in government, NGOs and international organizations.

The programme provides participants with the intellectual skills and instruments to understand the complex nexus between development aid, migration policy and food security.

Topics addressed will include:

  • The use of development aid as a tool for migration control
  • The outsourcing of migration control to developing countries
  • The focus on security in the context of migration control
  • The parallels between food (in)security and food aid and migration control
  • The nexus between humanitarian and development interventions

Academics and practitioners will share knowledge and insights on the role played by state and non-state actors in the development context and the workings of international and regional law and policy at the interface between hunger and migration. The summer school faculty is led by Dr. Annamaria LaChimia and Dr. Daria Davitti of Nottingham University. The programme will feature, amongst others, sessions led by Dr. Ana Aliverti of the University of Warwick Law School (LDRN partner institution) and LDRN member Likim Ng (Australian National University).

Further details and a full programme are available on the summer school website
