Coventry University attended the Guardian University Awards last week after being shortlisted for a prestigious award for the impact of its research shedding light on the dynamics of Europe’s migration crisis.
The ‘Unravelling the Mediterranean Migration Crisis’ (MEDMIG) project team entered in the research impact category, and although didn't pick up the award, it serves to recognise the work of CTPSR and the MEDMIG team in their efforts to better understand the complexities surrounding the migration crisis.
The team – led by Professor Heaven Crawley from the Migration and Displacement Research Group at CTPSR, and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) – spent time in Italy, Greece, Malta and Turkey interviewing 500 people who crossed the Mediterranean in 2015, as part of the first large-scale study of the backgrounds, experiences, aspirations and routes of refugees and migrants arriving in Europe.
This one-day conference will bring together academics, doctoral students, practitioners and policymakers from across disciplines to engage with contemporary contestations on transitional justice in order to contribute to the ever-growing scholarship in this field.
Katharine Jones has been invited to act as a judge for the One World Media Awards, Refugee Reporting category, 2017.
Professor Heaven Crawley has joined the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) as a Senior Research Associate to develop and strengthen links with the newly established migration research programmel.
On 17th January 2017, Professor Heaven Crawley she gave a seminar at London’s Refugee Law Initiative entitled Between conflict and survival: Unravelling the drivers of migration across the Mediterranean in 2015 which explored the use of categories to include and include certain group of migrants, and certain types of migration experiences, from the framework for international protection.
This Roundtable draws on extensive fieldwork research with survivors of sexual and gender based violence and displacement in Bosnia, the DRC and Colombia to discuss the lessons that can be learned from comparing the international norms of transitional justice with their implementation in different local contexts.
