Just Remit Conference: The Values of Remittances in Times of Upheaval

Thursday 13 October 2022 - Friday 14 October 2022
Turfmarkt 99
2511 DP The Hague

The JustRemit team of the Institute of Security and Global Affairs is organizing a two-day hybrid conference on remittances in times of social, political and economic upheaval. In this conference they aim to consider the politics of remittances, discussing how the values associated with the money, gifts, and non-material forms of support sent between migrants and their relatives are at once transformed and transformative in these unusual times. The conference will include various panels discussing methods and theories in remittance studies as well as thematic panels focusing on families, diaspora communities, and states.

The conference takes place on 13 and 14 October from 09:00 to 17:00. On 13 October, the conference will take place at the African Studies Centre in Leiden. On 14 October, the conference will take place at Wijnhaven in The Hague. It is also possible to attend the conference online. 

To register for the conference, send an e-mail to justremit@fgga.leidenuniv.nl stating your name, day(s) of attendance and whether you will attend online or in person.
