Migrants and Refugees in the Law. Historic evolution, current situation and unsolved questions 

The Fourth International Conference is organized by the Editors-In-Chiefs of the Cátedra Internacional conjunta Inocencio III, Dr. D. Javier Belda Iniesta [Universidad Católica de Murcia], and Prof. Matteo Nacci [Pontificia Università Lateranense].

The overall theme of the Conference is “Migrants and Refugees in the Law. Historic evolution, current situation and unsolved questions”. The current situation invites us to analyse and comprehend the phenomenon of the “Human mobility”, with a serious and intense interdisciplinary approach, that always has to recognize the central and essential importance of the person. By investigating on the historic evolution and the current situation, this Conference aims to understand whether the Migration has to be contemplated as a mere emergency, or as a possibility for the community.

This International Conference will be divided in three different sessions; each of them will correspond to three distinct periods: the ancient and medieval period [The migration in the ancient and the medieval history. Historical approach to human mobility]; the modern period [Nation, State, Revolution. The situation of the migrants and the refugees from the origin of the modern State] the post-modern period [Between emergency and ordinariness. Proposals for the enhancement of a constant phenomenon in the contemporary age].
