Precarious Migration: Voices of Undocumented Cambodian Migrants

Precarious Migration english

In June 2014 the Thai military expelled all undocumented migrants from Thailand. Over the following two weeks some 200,000 Cambodian migrants fled home. This comic, by Robert Nurick, Migrating out of Poverty Research Programme Consortium, gives voice to the experiences of migrants caught up in that event.

In the Dhaba now.

Statement in support of Özcan Keleş

The School of Global Studies expresses our solidarity with and support for Özcan Keleş, a PhD student in our interdisciplinary programme in Human Rights.

Recently, Özcan has become the subject of a co-ordinated harassment campaign. We condemn this harassment, and stand in support of Özcan’s fundamental human right to freedom of speech and expression, and to his right not to be made the object of hate speech and incitement. 

Özcan has written and spoken widely in the British and international media on current Turkish government policy towards civil society, including towards Hizmet, a civil society movement inspired by the teachings of Muslim cleric Fethullah Gülen, of which Özcan is a well-known member in the UK.
