Law and Migration: Critical Discussions on Epistemology

Droit, migration et épistémologie : discussions critiques

*  *  *

Published on Monday, August 30, 2021 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

This seminar aims at identifying and reflecting upon epistemological challenges raised by critical migration legal studies. These challenges can be divided into two aspects at least. On the one hand, in the field of migration, critical approaches should attempt to reveal inclusion or exclusion mechanisms as well as violence against individuals. On the other hand, the way researchers produce knowledge and knowledge thus produced may, per se, constitute a form of epistemic violence or injustice. To the contrary, questioning our epistemological approaches should enable us to resist these forms of violence or to correct them. Such questioning is essential to constructing critical approaches to the relationship between law and migration. This seminar offers to explore both epistemological aspects of migration law by fostering a dialogue with related disciplines such as sociology, anthropology and philosophy.

Description of the Seminar

This seminar aims at identifying and reflecting upon epistemological challenges raised by critical migration legal studies. These challenges can be divided into two aspects at least. On the one hand, in the field of migration, critical approaches should attempt to reveal inclusion or exclusion mechanisms as well as violence against individuals. On the other hand, the way researchers produce knowledge and knowledge thus produced may, per se, constitute a form of epistemic violence or injustice. To the contrary, questioning our epistemological approaches should enable us to resist these forms of violence or to correct them. Such questioning is essential to constructing critical approaches to the relationship between law and migration. This seminar offers to explore both epistemological aspects of migration law by fostering a dialogue with related disciplines such as sociology, anthropology and philosophy.

Although the seminar focuses on migration, legal knowledge not directly related to this object of study will be relevant to the discussion. It is thus not necessary to possess extensive knowledge of the subject to take part in the seminar. Similarly, even though our reflection focuses on the relationship between law and migration, we consider that the perspective of non-legal scholars will shed light on this relationship. Discussions will be held in both French and English, but the main language of presentations will depend on presenters. Details will be provided before each session (readings, language, presenters).

Attendance

The seminar will take place physically at Sciences Po. Enrollment is free but mandatory. The number of participants on site is limited. During enrollment, an option will be given to participate online. Should you indicate that you wish to be present on site, we kindly request that you please commit to attending the session.
