Summary

The Open University presents:
Statelessness as Displacement in Situ

12 July | 6pm–8pm | Free, registration essential
Migration Museum at the Workshop
26 Lambeth High Street, London, SE1 7AG

While statelessness is not a migratory status, it raises important questions for the meaning of displacement. In this session, we will talk about statelessness as displacement and look at what this means for our wider understanding of displacement, expulsion, and exclusion from States and international systems.

This is the second in a series of three public talks organised by The Open University looking at the question of how we think about migration. The series brings together academics and practitioners to engage with how the arts, politics and law represents the experiences of refugees and migrants.

Registration:

This is a free event, but registration via Eventbrite is essential.

Speakers:

Amal de Chickera, co-founder, Institute for Statelessness and Inclusion

Chris Nash, co-founder, European Network on Statelessness

Katja Swider, PhD candidate, University of Amsterdam
