Call for conference submissions now open
KNCHR and GIZ are inviting submissions from practitioners, advocates, academics and students for the Regional Conference on Human Rights in Migration Governance – From Influences to Responsibilities and Practice.
The conference, hosted by GIZ under the Better Migration Management (BMM) Programme
in partnership with KNCHR, will be held from 15-17 October 2018 in Nairobi, Kenya. Presenters will be fully sponsored to attend the conference and present their case studies, projects, ongoing research, field work or completed research papers. Deadline for submissions is 27 August 2018 and submission guidelines can be found http://www.knchr.org or at fb.me/HRMGConference.
The aim of the conference is to develop practical recommendations for mainstreaming human rights in migration governance. Migration has become a prominent topic in the public sphere, dominating policy discussions, debates and media headlines. At the center of heated discussions about migrants, border control, integration and refugee policy, a human rights perspective is conspicuously missing. Hence, the conference is particularly interested in exploring the following topics.
BMM aims to improve migration management in the region and in particular to address the trafficking of human beings and the smuggling of migrants within and from the Horn of Africa. The Programme is funded by the European Union and Germany.
