British Academy Conferences: Child marriage in forced migration: social processes in-flux.
Dates: 16-17 May 2019
The British Academy, 10-15 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH.
Forced migration does more than move people geographically; it changes how people function socially, and adapts the processes that hold people together. Through this conference, migration theorists, anthropologists, human geographers, development specialists and others will examine the impact of forced migration on child marriage through changes in gender dynamics and identities, place/home-making, people’s aspirations for the future and access to justice as well as conceptions of risk, vulnerability, protection, agency and resilience. The conference will also build on, and consolidate, this knowledge by considering how these social processes in-flux affect the approaches used in response by a range of actors.
