Deadline for online submission of abstracts

13 June 2015

Nations around the world have benefited from waves of migration that have shaped the central and integral nature of each nation’s growth and identity. Each wave is built on decisions, emotions and stories of families: families separated by migration; formed by migration; destroyed or built by migration and individuals joining new families.

Hosted by the ANU Migration Law Program, our third interdisciplinary conference on Migration Law and Policy will explore the impact that migration has on the family.

Submit an abstract

Note, only abstracts submitted using the online form will be considered for the conference.
