REFUGEE GUIDELINES  What is the meaning of risk for reasons of "political opinion"? Academic experts and Michigan Law students convened March 27-29, 2015 to discuss this topic at the Seventh Colloquium on Challenges in International Refugee Law. Participants included Catherine Dauvergne (University of British Columbia); Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen (Danish Institute for Human Rights); Mark Gibney (University of North Carolina); Susan Kneebone (Monash University); David Kosar (Masaryk University); Helene Lambert (University of Westminster); Hugo Storey (Judge, UK Upper Tribunal); and Kees Wouters (UNHCR, Geneva). The Program in Refugee and Asylum Law hosts the Colloquium every other year to give students the opportunity to take an active role in developing Michigan Guidelines on that year's chosen issue.
