I present work from the Producing Urban Asylum project on a relatively regular basis at academic conferences, to academic seminars, and to policymakers and the public too. Over the last two years, I’ve presented this work to audiences at the Universities of Antwerp, Cambridge, Frankfurt, Keele, Leicester, Oxford, Sheffield, Sussex, and York. Over the coming months, I’ll be presenting work at the forthcoming events;
