Topic outline

  • General description

    The main purpose of the International Refugee Law course is to introduce students to the legal framework for protection enjoyed by asylum seekers and refugees at the international level. While the course focuses mainly on the UN Convention on the Status of Refugees, it does not fail to highlight the alternative international protection system provided by international human rights law to asylum seekers. This course will provide students with a broad knowledge of international refugee law, which will enable them to address various asylum issues.
