Join our Conference on the 'Criminalisation' of Migration

15 September 2016

An exciting conference looking at how and why people cross borders, whether this is to seek work, flee persecution or because they are exploited through the world’s second most profitable crime, human trafficking and how these individuals are treated by Home Office Immigration Enforcement and police forces across the UK.

Date: Wednesday 21 September 2016

Location: LSE Bankside House, 24 Sumner Street, London SE1 9JA

Time: 11am (10:30am registration) until 4pm


The first panel will look at The AIRE Centre's challenge of Operation Nexus.

Matthew Evans, Director of The AIRE Centre will talk about protection against expusion in the era of Brexit. Zubier Yazdani, of Deighton Pierce Glynn solicitors, who are instructed in this case, will speak on the detention of EU nationals and Dan Squires QC, counsel for The AIRE Centre's challenge will look at police and immigration powers. 

The second panel will look more closely at specific groups, hosting discussions on the detained fast track challenge with Sonal Ghelani, human trafficking with Parosha Chandran and AIRE Centre Founder Nuala Mole speaking on child rights in the context of deportation.  

We will also have a special presentation from an AIRE Centre client who successfully challenged his deportation and won the right to remain in the UK with his family and loved ones.
