HSP Seminar (#264) “The End of Refugee Law?” (Jan. 15, 2020)

Title The End of Refugee Law?
Descriptions While the number of people fleeing from conflict and persecution has been on the rise, it has become increasingly difficult for refugees to find safety and receive adequate protection. In this regard, some argue that the international refugee law is “obsolete” and has less “relevance” to the global challenge today. Are we witnessing the end of refugee law? This seminar will address the potential of refugee law in terms of developing a new global vision of refugee protection through looking at refugee law’s relationship with other bodies of law and reconceiving refugee law from the standpoint of domestic law.
