The Topic

At present, more than 1 billion people are migrants. Migration has become a global phenomenon and a burning issue provoking social conflict and political instability in modern societies all over the world. The question of dealing with migrants and asylum seekers has dominated the political discourse, has given rise to national and international laws on emigration and immigration, some of them including discriminatory provisions, pressed laws against immigration (Acts of exclusion), encouraged international cooperation on migration, and prompted anti-migration rhetoric. This conference aims to invite scholars working in different disciplines such as law, linguistics, the media, multilingualism, legal translation and interpreting, among other fields, to share their views and insights into various aspects of the broad, but not exclusive, umbrella topic we propose: Language and the Law in the Age of Migration.
