Professor Hélène Lambert is to speak at a seminar hosted by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law on ‘The “refugee crisis”: Challenges and implications for international and EU law’.

The event, which will take place on 8 November 2016, will examine the legal questions arising from the so-called ‘refugee crisis’, looking at implications for international and European refugee law frameworks, the Schengen acquis and the Dublin system as well as implications for private vessels engaged in maritime search and rescue.

The seminar will also address the contemporary relevance of the 1951 Refugee Convention and the response of the European Union and its member states (now and post-Brexit) as actors in public international law.

The event is part of the Arthur Watts Public International Law Seminar Series, sponsored by Volterra Fietta, and has been been convened by Jean-Pierre Gauci, Research Fellow in Public International Law, and Jill Barrett, Arthur Watts Senior Research Fellow in Public International Law.
