The Center for Migration Studies in New York (CMS) is publishing a special online collection of original articles, essays, and blogs in tribute to the late Juan Osuna, former director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) at the US Department of Justice. The collection will be devoted to the values and issues that Juan cared about, which are now under unprecedented assault.
CMS seeks paper proposals on access to justice, due process, and fundamental fairness, covering any of the following:
- Particular migrant and refugee populations and programs that have been under attack by the current administration;
- Measures or strategies adopted by the administration that undermine access to justice, due process, and fundamental fairness;
- Community-based efforts and strategies to defend particular populations, as well as institutions and programs that promote access to justice and due process.
CMS welcomes policy analysis and evidence-based ideas and proposals that chart a different course for the United States.
The special collection will be the subject of a conference organized by CMS on November 15, 2018 at the Washington DC law offices of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP.
