The migration of people from one place to another is not a new phenomenon. However, it has attracted much attention in the present time when the states have become more conscious about demarcating their borders and restricting non-citizens from permanent settlement in their country. In the absence of a global convention to tackle illegal migration, it has been left open for the states to frame their legal policy. In addition, in the last twenty years, the dimension of the complexities and challenges of the forcibly displaced people, migrants, and refugees have been significantly changed, which often get less priority in the discussion of protection and human rights of these people. Against this backdrop, an academic conference may open the door of critical discussions and debates on this topic to share knowledge and disseminate research findings.
IFM Law School of India and the Center for Peace Studies of North South University of Bangladesh will jointly organize a virtual conference in November 2021 where scholars will be invited to exchange and build knowledge on the above discussed topic.
