Historic evolution, current situation and unsolved questions

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the Fourth International Conference of the International Chair Innocent III, to be held at Universidad Cátolica San Antonio in Murcia, Spain from 12 to 14 December 2018.

The Fourth International Conference is organized by the Editors-In-Chiefs of the Cátedra Internacional conjunta Inocencio III, Dr. D. Javier Belda Iniesta [Universidad Católica de Murcia], and Prof. Matteo Nacci [Pontificia Università Lateranense].

The first International Conference [in the year of the 800th anniversary of the Fourth Lateran Council and of the English Magna Charta] has spoken about Innocent III and his time, from the period of absolute papal monarchy to the Fourth Lateran Council, not only by focusing the point of view of history, but also by underlining law topics.

The second International Conference has discussed upon Justice, Mercy and Law [from revenge, to forgiveness in the History of Law]. Retributive way, forgiveness and mercy are the key-words of a new idea of Justice, which has to forsake the concept of private revenge and “revenge for honour” to accomplish its actual aim.

The third International Conference has considered the justice and the judicial process in the History of law, from an interdisciplinary point of view: law, comparative law, history, sociology, historiography and other disciplines have been profoundly involved.

The title of the next Conference is “Migrants and Refugees in the Law. Historic evolution, current situation and unsolved questions”. The current situation invites us to analyse and comprehend the phenomenon of the “Human mobility”, with a serious and intense interdisciplinary approach, that always has to recognize the central and essential importance of the person. By investigating on the historic evolution and the current situation, this Conference aims to understand whether the Migration has to be contemplated as a mere emergency, or as a possibility for the community.

This International Conference will be divided in three different sessions; each of them will correspond to three distinct periods: the ancient and medieval period [The migration in the ancient and the medieval history. Historical approach to human mobility]; the modern period [Nation, State, Revolution. The situation of the migrants and the refugees from the origin of the modern State] the post-modern period [Between emergency and ordinariness. Proposals for the enhancement of a constant phenomenon in the contemporary age].

The following MAIN SPEAKERS have confirmed their participation: Alejandro Martínez Dhier (Universidad de Granada), Claudia Moatti (University of Southern California), Thanos Zartaloudis (University of Kent), Atria Larson (Saint Louis University), Claudia Storti (Università degli Studi Di Milano), Javier García Martín (Universidad País Vasco), Evelyn Hu-Dehart (Brown University) Peter Heather (King’s College London), Alessandro Barbero (Università del Piemonte Orientale), Ida Altman (University of Florida), Dominic Pasura (University of Glasgow).
