Forced Migration Crisis

About this Course

This course will take as its focus the greatest instance of forced migration in Europe since the immediate aftermath of World War II. More than just an examination of the protection of migrants and refugees in general, this course will consider how the enormity of this particular migrant crisis has revealed the considerable fault lines in the law of this area. Students will be introduced to the overall international law framework for dealing with migrants and refugees, the regional frameworks that work in conjunction with that international law, and domestic laws that implement these international and regional norms.
