Refugees and Human Rights

The Future of International Protection in the UK

With an opening address by a senior legal figure

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.
