Lore Roels receives Best Presentation Award at Faculty Research Day


Lore Roels ontvangt prijs voor beste presentatie op Facultaire OnderzoeksdagThis week, our colleague Lore Roels received the Best Presentation Award at Ghent University's Faculty of Law and Criminology Research Day 2022. Most importantly, the award includes a valorisation voucher of €1500, with which she hopes to set up a @ConversationsfromCalais-inspired poster project. Discussions on sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) are omnipresent and awareness about the issue is growing on a daily basis. At the same time, discussions on migration and the so-called ‘refugee crisis’ still too often remain stuck in a dehumanising discourse. The purpose of Lore’s valorisation project is to rehumanise ideas of SGBV in asylum contexts far beyond the walls of academia, more precisely: onto the walls of the public domain. In concrete, she wants to spread posters that translate legal reasoning in asylum procedures related to SGBV in a tangible manner. As such, she hopes to reach passers-by who would not usually get in touch with her research and the decision making involved in it. Keep an eye on the street walls!
