This event will examine the legal questions arising from the so-called « refugee crisis », looking at implications for International and European refugee law frameworks, the Schengen aquis and the Dublin system as well as for private vessels engaged in maritime search and rescue.
Beyond and through these questions, this 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.
