A two-day interdisciplinary symposium
"Wanted: New Paradigms? Forced Migration, Mobilities and Humanitarianism in Australia and Beyond"
The Swinburne Institute for Social Research, Melbourne, Australia, 12 & 13 November 2012
Politics, policies and approaches to management and care of forced migrants are shaped by moral and practical imperatives and informed by often-implicit sets of values and knowledge. This two-day symposium will critique current paradigms framing thinking and practice and will interrogate new paradigms that situate mobility and morality at the center.
