Protection from Refuge

Kate Ogg
In this seminar, Kate presents her doctoral research on the role courts play in one of the most significant problems facing the international refugee protection regime: that the places in which people seek refuge are often as dangerous and bleak as the conditions they fled. Kate’s case studies across four continents indicate that legal decision-makers have, at times, played a powerful role in facilitating refugees’ journeys in search of sanctuary but have ultimately compounded the difficulties inherent in finding genuine refuge.

Chinatowns and the rise of China

Ien Ang
This paper discusses how Chinatowns today are increasingly contested sites where older diasporic understandings of Chineseness are unsettled by newer, neoliberal ones, dominated by the pull of China’s newly found economic might. In particular, the so-called ‘rise of China’ has spawned a globalisation of the idea of ‘Chinatown’ itself, with its actual uptake in urban development projects the world over, or backlash against it, determined by varying perceptions of China’s global ascendancy as an amalgam of ‘threat’ and ‘opportunity’.
