Strangers in New Homelands Conference
12th Anniversary Celebration

Migrant Rights & Refugee Rights are Human Rights 

The 12th edition of the Strangers in New Homelands Conference will focus on discussing and examining these dangerous trends of systematic human rights abuses meted out routinely to vulnerable population groups and how their life outcomes could be improved around the world. Specifically, presentations and workshops will examine how migrants interact with potential oppressions and markers of identity such as race, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, age, religion, language, and socioeconomic status.
