Lecture: “Let language not betray us”: immigration, enforcement and modern slavery

June 6, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

“The Annual Elizabeth Colson Lecture 2018 will be given by Professor Bridget Anderson, Professor of Mobilities, Migration and Citizenship, University of Bristol .

In public debate, employing the language of ‘anti-trafficking’ and ‘anti-slavery’ has become a useful way of managing tensions between borders controls and human rights. In the recent Windrush debacle for example, the claim that the Home Office initiated ‘hostile environment’ has resulted in injustice and deportation was refuted on the grounds that it targets ‘illegal immigrants alone, some of whom had been working in conditions akin to slavery’. This lecture will explore what is concealed and what is revealed by this language.
