On Friday, 25 February 2022, Dr Jeff Handmaker will be speaking at an event on 'Legal Mobilization, Cause Lawyering, and Crimmigration Law' organized by the Border Criminologies group at Oxford University in the Faculty of Law.

Jeff Handmaker, who leads the Legal Mobilization Project, will be speaking on the topic of Challenging the mantra of irregular migration in international development policies through legal mobilization.

He will critique the dominant policy regime underpinning regional and national policies on international mobility, which are based on the goal of combatting irregular migration. This comprises extra-territorial, securitized measures that have resulted in violations of international human rights law; such measures amount to lawfare.
