Event description
The fourth event in the RLI - UNHCR International Refugee Law Seminar Series

About this Event

The International Refugee Law Seminar Series, sponsored by the Refugee Law Initiative at the School of Advanced Study, University of London, provides a public space for discussion, promotion and dissemination of research between academics, practitioners, students and others with an interest in the refugee and forced migration field.

This 10th International Refugee Law Seminar Series is held jointly with UNHCR to present discussion and analysis of key issues in refugee law and policy.

This series will explore the future of refugee protection in a global community. It will frame those discussions within the current 'blueprint' of the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR). Bringing together a range of speakers from academic, policy and lived experience, the series will present varied perspectives on the development of refugee protection and promote the visibility of, and engagement with, the GCR within UK academic and public audiences.
