Call for submissions: Displacement, governance and human rights (September 2022)

We invite participants, lecturers and organisers of the 2022 FFVT summer school to contribute to this special issue, which will mirror its topics and debates. Following a week of discussions on refugee protection regimes across the world, this issue will gather the research and ideas shared during the summer school, aiming to continue the dialogue and inspire new paths of inquiry and reflection. For this special issue, we invite contributors to reflect on the main three areas of discussion in this summer school: the history, laws and policies of refuge; issues of gender and identity in displacement; and the implications of art and knowledge production surrounding refuge.

Beside the proposed topic, we are also keen on receiving pieces that analyse current news about migration and (im)mobility, or reflect on cultural developments related to these topics. Articles should address a broad audience, made of experts and non-experts, and should be originally written in English or Spanish.

If you are interested in proposing a submission, please send us a short abstract no longer than 250 words via email to: RoutedMagazine@gmail.com

Forthcoming [CLOSED]: Movement and religion (December 2021)

Movement and religion are intimately related, from faith-based mandates of pilgrimage and proselytism to religiously driven displacement and exclusion. Religions have also been influenced by mobility and diverse cultural encounters and shaped by them into new local forms. At the same time, faith or spirituality can be a key source of sustenance for people on the move, physically (e.g. when receiving shelter or provisions from religious groups) or spiritually, as a source of hope. Religious leaders often operate as cultural brokers, facilitating or shaping the incorporation of newcomers into receiving societies; while differences in beliefs can cause generational conflicts within migrant communities. For this issue, we are looking for contributions that address the topic of movement and religion in any of its forms.

This call for submissions is already closed, but you can read more about our upcoming issue here.
