Join us at Millennium Fields to help maintain and improve this award winning grassland site.

We’ll be doing various tasks on the grassland and small woodland to maintain and improve these areas for both wildlife and people. This month we’ll be starting our summer scythe, cutting back the grass and raking up all of the cuttings. We’ll do this bit by bit to make sure the wildflowers have a chance to flourish before we mow and to make sure the wildlife still has some shelter.

Any age and ability welcome. Under 13s must be accompanied by an adult and 13-17 year olds need parental consent.

Free entry.

Promoting Decent Work for Migrants under SDG Goal 8: the precarious role of the ILO

About this Event

Recent decades have witnessed intensified cooperation of states in an attempt to develop a common framework for regulating the cross-border movement of workers under the guidance of international organisations. Partly thanks to the International Labour Organisation (ILO), migration is explicitly mentioned in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – specifically Goal 8 on decent work – and decent work is also part of the Global Compact on Migration. However, the space of global migration governance is characterised by a multiplication of actors and as a result, other international organisations have appeared on the scene pushing the ILO to the side-lines. This raises the need for a repositioning of the ILO within the field of migration governance, as demanded by the global migrant rights movement.

The central question of this lecture will probe into concerns of the leadership potential by the ILO. Particularly so during an era when multilateral governance of migration is characterised by, on the one hand, an imbalance between endeavours aimed at controlling access to labour markets and income generating opportunities, and on the other hand, the promotion of labour and human rights of the large pool of highly precarious migrant workers.

Professor Nicola Piper – British Academy Global Professor, Queen Mary University of London

Nicola Piper is Professor of International Migration and Director of the Sydney Asia Pacific Migration Centre (SAPMiC) at the University of Sydney. Prof. Piper holds a British Academy Global Professorship hosted by Queen Mary University of London. As a political sociologist and migration scholar, Nicola Piper’s broad areas of interest cover migrants’ rights, transnational political organising, multi-layered governance of migration and gendered migration. More specifically, her research is on migration governance “from below” , that is a rights-based approach to migration derived from (formal and informal) political organising by or on behalf of migrants.

Join us at Millennium Fields to help maintain and improve this award winning grassland site.

We’ll be doing various tasks on the grassland and small woodland to maintain and improve these areas for both wildlife and people. This month we’ll be doing a spring scythe and sowing wildflower seeds in the meadow. This will improve these areas for pollinators and other invertebrates and will make sure we keep the site buzzing!

Any age and ability welcome. Under 13s must be accompanied by an adult and 13-17 year olds need parental consent.

Free entry.

We’ll be doing various tasks on the grassland and small woodland to maintain and improve these areas for both wildlife and people. This month we’ll be working in the woodland behind the meadow. We’re going to do some thinning, coppicing, and pruning to rejuvenate some of the trees and encourage trees to regrow to make elaborate multi-stemmed structures – perfect for low nesting birds!

Learning from Human Rights Defenders

The Syrian government has used enforced disappearances and torture as part of a systematic attack against the civilian population and the opposition since 2011. At least 98,000 persons have been forcibly disappeared in Syria since March 2011, according to the latest report by the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR).

As a previous detainee, Joumana Alshtiwi will discuss prison conditions in Syria, focusing particularly on the situation of women. Joumana will discuss her own experience of 10 months in detention, as well as more recent cases, supported by evidence from human rights organisations and individuals working on the ground.

Joumana Alshtiwi

Joumana Alshtiwi is a Syrian human rights activist and a second year Psychology student at the University of York. She was involved in the Syrian revolution in 2011, at a time when she was a pharmacy student at Damascus University. It was a peaceful uprising for political change after decades of autocratic rule, requesting a better future.

The Syrian regime arrested Joumana initially for 3 days in 2012. After her release, she continued with humanitarian activities, helping displaced people get medical assistance and finding housing for them after their houses had been bombed. In 2013, she was arrested again, tortured for 23 days and subsequently disappeared for 9 months by the government.

After her release in 2014, Joumana fled to Lebanon as a refugee. There she worked for 2 years as a trainee in a Syrian NGO supporting refugee women. She organized several events about Syria, refugees and detainees.

After having arrived in the UK as a refugee and prior to taking up her studies at York, she has organized many events on Syria in Wales.

 

A one day conference to explore marginalised histories and the intersectionality between them.
