TNH PhD Network - committee report for Q1 2021 available here.

22 May 2023 | Roundtable on Migration
Collaborative event by the TNH PhD Network and Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) UCD Chapter

Topic: Initially, the motivation for the event was to touch upon themes related to the Ukraine crisis and the consequent reception of refugees. However, reflecting on migration is a more general and encompassing phenomenon not only restricted to the European reality. The questions on the topic touch upon an extremely wide spectrum of disciplines.

Format:The event will take the form of an open conversation between members of the TNH PhD network and members of MAP. At the start of the event, the participants will start from a previously agreed upon set of questions. The plan is then to open the floor to participants and attendees so that everyone can chime in as they please.

Goal:It is completely appropriate to have questions to which we lack answers. This will be the most likely outcome given the complexity and delicacy of the issue. The goal is not to have answers but to have people share their intuitions from the point of view of their research interests and what they are familiar with.
