Event Details

The International Refugee Law seminar series at the Refugee Law Initiative 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 7th annual seminar series addresses the theme of: ‘Protection in the context of large-scale movements of refugees and migrants’.

Speaker: Michele Klein Solomon is Director of the Migration Policy and Research Department at the International Organization for Migration (IOM), where she has been instrumental in building the Organization’s migration policy expertise and profile, including by helping to create and leading the IOM International Dialogue on Migration, and serving as a key member of the secretariat to and producing the Berne Initiative’s International Agenda on Migration Management. She regularly provides advice and guidance to governments in all regions of the world as well as to regional, intergovernmental and non¬governmental organizations on a wide range of migration policy matters.

Ms. Klein Solomon received her Juris Doctor and Masters of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) degrees, cum laude, from the Georgetown University Law Center and Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, in 1988, with honors including the Landegger Honors Certificate in International Business Diplomacy. She served as the topics editor for the journal Law and Policy in International Business.

Prior to joining IOM in 2000, Ms. Klein Solomon served as an Attorney Adviser with the U.S. Department of State, Office of the Legal Adviser, from 1989 - 2000. She served in a number of offices (UN Affairs, Law Enforcement and Intelligence, Human Rights and Refugees, and Management) during her tenure with the State Department. Of particular relevance to her current position, Ms. Klein Solomon served as the Department's principal refugee and migration lawyer from 1991 - 1996.
