A yearly occurrence, it is a chance to be able to discuss issues and assess the progress that has been made in migrant rights. An important issue, and one that has been put into jeopardy ever since Brexit and the current government’s tougher stance on migration, the discussions will create an opportunity to exchange thoughts and questions.

This year’s summit will greatly revolve around local and regional experiences and perspectives.

Joining the discussions will be activists, campaigners and thinkers. Among them, Bridget Anderson, Professor of Mobilities, Migration and Citizenship at the University of Bristol, Black Lives Matter UK (to be confirmed), Simon Cox, Migration lawyer for the Open Society Justice Initiative, United Voices of the World, a grassroots, member-led trade union, founded by and for low paid migrant workers, Liz Fekete, director of the Institute of Race Relations (IRR), Sonia McKay, Professor of European Socio-Legal Studies, University of the West of England, Bristol and Co-author of “Living on the margins – Undocumented migrants in a global city”.
