6th RLI Annual Conference: Improving the Global Refugee Regime: From Theory to Practice?

29 June 2022, 10.00am - 1 July 2022, 6.00pm

Refugee Law Initiative

Conference / Symposium

Online- via Zoom


Run as a virtual event over three half-days, the 6th RLI Annual Conference is dedicated to debating the latest research and developments in our field. It builds on the success of our previous conferences in uniting academics, practitioners, policy-makers and students.

Some speakers at the 5th RLI annual conference argued that the global refugee regime needs changing. Such proposals open topical debate around how a reconfigured refugee regime might look (e.g. new burden-sharing arrangements, a global oversight mechanism etc.). Yet they also raise difficult questions about the desirability and feasibility of such change.

At this year's 6th annual conference, the RLI challenges the refugee law/protection field to take this debate head on.

We are pleased to announce that the keynote speakers for this year's conference are:

Professor Alex Aleinikoff, Director of the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility
Sana Mustafa, Director of Partnerships and Engagement at Asylum Access
Professor Jane McAdam, Director of the Andrew & Renata Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law

Further details are available on the Refugee Law Initiative website.

A provisional programme is available to view here.

All welcome

This event is free, but booking is required. It will be held online with details about how to join the virtual event being circulated via email to registered attendees in advance.
