October 25-27, 2023
In Ottawa, ON, & Online
CIAJ’s 47th Annual Conference will explore current issues related to the law of borders. It will open the door to discussion and challenge the definition of what a “border” is, including the very notion of national borders, taking into account indigenous perspectives.
For many people, moving across borders implies facing vulnerability and precarity. How can we provide better protection to migrants and refugees, extending our vision beyond individuals to include families? In a world experiencing the effects of climate change, is our legal definition of a refugee still accurate? Furthermore, economic frontiers are becoming increasingly blurred. In such a context, it is also important to address work issues from the perspective of the adequacy of protections available to migrant workers, the implications of working remotely across territories, and the challenges of studying abroad, and to join forces in creating a more just and inclusive world.
