Dear colleague,

 

We would like to remind you of our International Conference “(Dis)connecting People? The law and practice of family reunification” on 9 and 10 September in Ghent.

Registration is still open until 31 August! You can see the programme on our website and for registration please click here.

 

This conference aims to establish a dialogue on family reunification between the legal and the social sciences, as well as to cross bridges between academia, policy and practice. Keynote speakers are prof. em. Kees Groenendijk and dr. Federica Infantino.

 

The conference will be physical – subject to sanitary measures – but online participation is possible as well.

For any questions, please contact us on familyreunification.re@ugent.be.
