Bailliet on the Refugee Crisis: Misconceptions about International Law

Professor Cecilia Bailliet has together with four other researchers written an op-ed in Aftenposten warning that the result of the EU's refugee deal with Turkey may be potentially extensive breeches of international law.

In their op-ed "Misconceptions about international law" [Feil om folkeretten]  Cecilia Bailliet, Mads Andenæs, Terje Einarsen, Andre Møkkelgjerd and Vidgis Vevstad explain the relationship between national and interntional law. They show how the former is to be interpreted in light of the latter. They warn that unless the options that international law provides are explored, the result of the EU's refugee deal with Turkey may be extensive breaches of international law.

The op-ed is published in Aftenposten 22 March. Read the op-ed at Aftenposten (in Norwegian).
