Online launch: Mobilising for rights in the MENA region
Special seminars and lectures
Thursday, 14 September 2023, 11am to 12pm
Online via Zoom
What role can localised or transnational acts of mobilisation play in supporting the rights of forced migrants in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA)?
In this launch event, the featured authors will share insights and lessons learned from efforts to strengthen the rights of forced migrants. Reflecting on opportunities for, and obstacles to, mobilisation, the authors will discuss the importance of local refugee-led organising and networks of transnational solidarity. At the same time, they will reflect on the many obstacles their efforts are confronted with, such as complex legal landscapes, donor restrictions, European containment policies, and the increasingly widespread criminalisation of solidarity.
The launch is a great opportunity to network with authors and dive deeper into the issues and challenges raised by the authors in their pieces. It is also a great chance to reflect on developments and to consider questions on mobilisation for the rights of refugees and other vulnerables in the MENA region.
