Conference on Criminalization of Undocumented Migrants in the Netherlands

Keywords: Criminalisation

The Dutch government recently launched a proposal to criminalize undocumented migrants. In response, PICUM and some of its Dutch Members, Stichting LOS, Stichting ROS and the Paulus Church, have decided to organize an international workshop.

The workshop titled, “Countering New Legislative Proposals Criminalizing Undocumented Migrants in the Netherlands: Building on Experiences of Resistance Throughout Europe”, is intended to provide a better understanding of laws, policies and practices concerning criminalization of undocumented migrants in different European countries. By providing examples and sharing experiences from countries that have experienced such criminalization legislations, the hope is to better prepare other countries, such as the Netherlands, which may soon have to face a similar battle. The workshop will be held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands on Friday, 27 May 2011.
