This conference brings together lawyers, activists and academics to focus on the opportunities for intervening in family migration policy by a range of actors

This conference brings together lawyers, activists and academics, all of whom have been involved in attempts to resist or ameliorate the impact of the family migration changes. We shall focus primarily on the opportunities for intervening in family migration policy by a range of actors but it will also be of broader interest and relevance.

It will reflect on successes and failures, on the tools that are available, such as research into the different groups affected (children, elderly, spouses), and the strategies they have deployed, as well as campaigning, legal and parliamentary  interventions,  how they may be most effectively used, and on the challenges that lie ahead.

The conference is free to attend but numbers are limited and an early reservation is advised so please book your place.

Confirmed speakers so far include: * Alison Harvey (Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association) * Saira Grant (Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants) * Charlotte Rosamond (Les Amoureux au Ban Public, France) * Chai Patel (Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants) * Professor Eleonore Kofman, Middlesex University * Dr Helena Wray, Middlesex University
