Refugee week lecture: Refugees and Human Rights
As part of Refugee Week 2015
Law Centre (NI) invites you to attend a lecture by Professor Colin Harvey
Refugees and Human Rights
The Future of International Protection in the UK
With an opening address by a senior legal figure
Friday 19 June, 3 pm – 5 pm, at Law Centre (NI), 124 Donegall Street, Belfast BT1 2GY
In the context of an unprecedented number of people fleeing their homes around the world, the ongoing tragedy of migrant deaths in the Mediterranean and the uncertainty about the UK’s commitment to the Human Rights Act, this lecture will focus on the importance of human rights standards in the protection of asylum seekers and refugees. Colin Harvey is a Professor of Human Rights Law at Queen's University Belfast.
A reception will follow the lecture.
Please be seated by 3pm.
This is a fundraising event in support of NICRAS and Homeplus, two community organisations that provide a lifeline to destitute asylum seekers in Northern Ireland.
Voluntary donations will be welcome following the lecture, or you can donate online to Homeplus through Justgiving: www.justgiving.com/homeplus-ni
