Refugee Rights Workshop

This advanced seminar affords students the opportunity for both conceptual analysis and hands-on application of internationally guaranteed refugee rights.

The Workshop begins by considering the way in which rights are allocated under the Refugee Convention, and of the interrelationship between refugee-specific rights and more general norms of international human rights law. Against this background, we will take up as a case study the right of refugees to work in asylum countries.

The second part of the Workshop is student-directed, with each member of the Workshop taking responsibility to investigate a current situation in which refugee rights are arguably at risk, and to conceive and present an international legal intervention strategy for critique by Workshop members.
