Seminar will be held on Thursday 22 August, Room 608, Melbourne Law School, 185 Pelham Street, Carlton
On Thursday 22 August, we’ll be joined by Dr Ibi Losoncz, the author of Institutional Disrespect: South Sudanese Experiences of the Structural Marginalisation of Refugee Migrants in Australia, who argues that when disrespect comes in the forms of injustice, institutional mistreatment, or systemic in governance arrangements, the responsibility lies not with individuals but with the state, its institutions and its appointed bureaucrats.
Combining theoretical analysis of institutional engagement through the lens of respect with examples of the resettlement experiences of South Sudanese Australians, the seminar examines how blocked pathways to develop positive self-identities and meaningful lives can lead to a breakdown of social bonds between immigrants and social institutions.
