From December 1-4, the workshop “Mobility, Mobilisation and Displacement in ‘post-slavery’ West-Africa” took place in Bamako, Mali. Organised by Lotte Pelckmans (SlaFMig / University of Copenhagen) and Paolo Gaibazzi (University of Bayreuth) through the research center Point Sud, different actors came together to exchange and discuss the topics of mobility, descent-based slavery and its repercussions in different countries and contexts.
My name is Sophia and I am a student in the Master’s programme ‘Advanced Migration Studies’ at the University of Copenhagen. Previously I obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Groningen, Netherlands in ‘International Relations and International Organisation’. I am very interested in Human Rights and the intersection of (contemporary) slavery and migration studies. I joined the SlaFMig project
