Eleventh meeting | ASIA DIALOGUE ON FORCED MIGRATION | 2022

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 03/08/2022 - 12:00am in

The Asia Dialogue on Forced Migration (ADFM) convened virtually for its eleventh meeting in 2022, with part part one taking place on 24 March and the second part taking place on 1 July.

We were delighted to have opening remarks from the distinguished Foreign Minister of Indonesia, Retno Marsudi, and the Foreign Minister of Malaysia, Saifuddin Abdullah in part one of the meeting.

Other attendees and presenters included senior government officials from eight countries, international organisations and civil society representatives. 

Key documents for part one:

Key documents for part two:

The March meeting focused on opportunities for reform of the Bali Process on People Smuggling, Trafficking in Persons and Related Transnational Crime on its twentieth anniversary this year.

This culminated in the Future Ready report, setting out an eight-step plan to strengthen and clarify the Bali Process so countries in the Indo-Pacific can manage forced migration crises in a way that is durable, effective and humane.

The ADFM has worked closely with the Bali Process since its inception in 2015 to strengthen the multilateral body’s ability to address forced migration in the Indo Pacific. This includes considerable work in 2016 following the Andaman Sea crisis.

The July meeting focused on ongoing humanitarian and displacement crises in Afghanistan and Myanmar, and discussed how the region can prepare and respond more effectively. COVID-19 and the invasion of Ukraine underscore the importance of not only responding to crises as they occur but being prepared for future events.

The co-convenors’ statement from this meeting highlights points of agreement and a number of opportunities ahead which states can use to develop more humane responses to forced migration challenges.

The next ADFM meeting will be convened in person over two days, likely in the first quarter of 2023. We welcome suggestions for areas of focus.

Lande: The Calais 'Jungle' and Beyond

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 06/10/2019 - 10:00pm in

Book at Lunchtime seminar held on 16th October 2019. How can Archaeology help us understand our contemporary world? This ground-breaking book reflects on material, visual and digital culture from the Calais 'Jungle' - the informal camp where, before its destruction in October 2016, more than 10,000 displaced people lived.

Lande: The Calais 'Jungle' and Beyond reassesses how we understand ‘crisis’, activism, and the infrastructure of national borders in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies, foregrounding the politics of environments, time, and the ongoing legacies of empire.

Introducing a major collaborative exhibit at Oxford’s Pitt Rivers Museum, the book argues that an anthropological focus on duration, impermanence and traces of the most recent past can recentre the ongoing human experiences of displacement in Europe today.

Authors Professor Dan Hicks and Dr Sarah Mallet were in conversation at this TORCH Book at Lunchtime event with Professor Mary Bosworth, Dr Leonie Ansems de Vries, Lisa Kennedy and John McTernan, introduced by Professor Wes Williams.

Book at Lunchtime is a series of bite-sized book discussions held fortnightly during term-time, with commentators from a range of disciplines. The events are free to attend and open to all.
