Highlights &  Abstracts

Free Postgraduate+ Online Workshop September, 2022

War, Economic Strife and the Long-Lasting Intersectional Effects on Refugees, Minorities, Disabled People and the Global Environment

 

Wednesday 14 September 2022

 

Outline:

 

This Online Workshop consists of two sessions of three/four speakers.  Talks/presentations will last for 15 minutes (maximum) only. 

 

After the first four speakers in session one has finished, the attendees/audience will be put in breakout rooms for 20 minutes to discuss what they have heard and formulate questions.  On return, there will be a 20-minute Q&A session.

 

A ten-minute break will follow.

 

Session two, will take the same format.  Assuming that there are eight speakers in total, and if the workshop starts at 12.00 (GMT), then it will finish around 15.50 (GMT).

12-12.10 (GMT) Brief Introduction.

12.10-13.10 Four fifteen-minute presentations.

Presentations in this event could lead to publication in either our journals (please click here) or books (click here).  It could also secure a place at our World Convention in Finland 2023 (see CfPs here).

 

Topics and Format:

 

Oral sessions will be conducted online (in person or possibly by a pre-recorded video given global time differences) and be based on the workshop title in accordance with the intersectional nature of (In)Justice International’s investigations and the preferences of the presenter.  For example, refugees can be disabled and Indigenous or could be LGBTIQ+ individuals/groups facing discrimination and persecution during and after war.  How have different groups, who have long faced discrimination, stigmatisation and persecution, been treated and how can recompense be facilitated?  Economic strife - whether it be caused by conflicts or its widespread consequences, COVID-19, increased costs in natural resources or 'stagflation' - is relevant in that war can either cause or exacerbate divisive economic forces impacting upon these aforementioned individuals.

 

These are but a few examples of the diverse approaches that we would like to see.

 

Presentations and Audience:

 

We would like to see this workshop limited to students at all levels and reporters, barristers and people with ‘lived’ experience of such atrocities. We would like attendees to actively participate in the Workshop breakout sessions wherever possible. When taken with the actual presentations, this would not only enhance the learning process but also contribute to the success of the event. Unfortunately, proceedings will only be conducted in English although some help may be available.

 

Time Differentials:

 

To mitigate for the different time zones, successful Canadian presenters, for example, will be placed in the second session starting at 14.00 (GMT), whereas successful Australian presenters will be placed in the first session starting at 12.10 (GMT).  Successful European presenters will be placed in either of the two sessions.  Attendees, however, are invited to attend just one full session or both as they see fit to prevent a disruptive atmosphere during the workshop.
