Event Details

As part of the Lunchtime Seminar Series, the African Centre for Migration & Society invites you to a seminar titled 'The migration management of refugees in contemporary South Africa: the erosion of the refugee regime?' presented by Nick Maple (Refugee Law Initiative (RLI), Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University of London). This presentation will provide a multi-scalar perspective on contemporary South African refugee policy and practice. Drawing on the new South African Green and White Papers on International Migration as a focal point for discussion, this presentation will suggest via a form of regime shifting, the treatment of refugees in South Africa is rapidly moving from policy and practice founded on the global refugee regime to a new migration management approach whereby refugees are becoming seen solely as economic migrants.

Date: Tuesday 15 August 2017

Time: 12.30 -13.30

Venue: ACMS Seminar Room 2163, South East Wing, Second Floor, Solomon Mahlangu House, University of the Witwatersrand East Campus
