ESRC: Space, place and ‘othering’: Deactivating the ‘hostile environment

7 November, 2019 - 13:30 to 17:00

This ESRC Festival of Social Sciences event will comprise a co-delivered seminar and workshop to interrogate and challenge the ‘hostile environment’ that targets people seeking asylum in the United Kingdom. It will draw upon co-research between the University of Huddersfield and RAPAR's young people seeking asylum that took place as part of the PARTISPACE project funded by H2020 (2016-2018) and explored young people’s participation in the hostile environment, as well as ongoing research on activism, campaigning and young people’s lives.
