Conference Participation

April 12, 2022
Sylvie Sarolea and Francesca Raimondo, both members of the VULNER Belgian team, participated to the “École intensive sur le droit d’asile et de la migration“ (Advanced School on Asylum and Migration Law), which took place from March 28 - 31, 2022 at the Faculty of Legal, Economic and Social Sciences of the Hassan II University, Casablanca, Morocco.

On the first day of the conference, Sylvie participated to the panel 'Les systèmes de protection des personnes migrantes' (Protection Systems for Migrants), with a presentation on the control procedures ('Présentation synthétique des procédures de contrôle').

On March 30, 2022 Francesca contributed with her talk 'La vulnérabilité et les migrants: une approche transversale et intersectionnelle: les sources légales’ (Vulnerability and migrants: a cross-cutting and intersectional approach: legal sources) to the panel devoted to the vulnerability of migrants and asylum seekers (‘Analyse des états de vulnérabilités des personnes migrantes’). Her presentation addressed three main aspects. Firstly, Francesca gave a general overview on the concept of vulnerability, exploring on the strengths and shortcomings of its use in the human rights context as well as in the asylum and migration fields. Secondly, she took the opportunity to share the main results of the first VULNER report on Belgium, focussing on the ways the concept of vulnerability takes shape in the practice. Finally, Francesca highlighted the opportunity to take an intersectional approach with regard to vulnerability in the asylum field in order to achieve a more detailed understanding of vulnerability as a continuous process composed of different layers or degrees, rather than a fixed status or condition interpreted from a presence-absence perspective.
