The Research Group in Migration Law aims to draw together the Faculty's existing research releated to various aspects of migration, and assist in developing new legal knowledge on this topic. The Faculty of Law has a long tradition of migration research and the research group builds on this scholarly and collaborative foundation.
The key question the research project REF-ARAB interrogates is: What does refugee protection look like in states facing extraordinary refugee influxes and who are not party to the key international legal instruments providing for the protection of the world's refugees?
What are the current trends when it comes to assisting and protecting refugees and asylum-seekers in Europe and in the Middle East? How do political decisions regarding refugees taken in one region affect assistance and protection in other regions?
In cooperation with the Nobel Institute and the Global Policy Initative at Columbia University, New York, the Faculty's research group on International Law and Governance organizes an event to mark the launch of a Model International Mobility Convention and the implications of a comprehensive global mobility regime.
