The University of Oslo and the Center for Peace and Justice, Brac University co-organize an event on international refugee law and the Rohingya refugee situation in Bangladesh.
Five years into the Rohingya refugee situation in 2022, Bangladesh is becoming reluctant to be a long-term host. In this seminar, M Sanjeeb Hossain will discuss Bangladesh's potential shift from a 'humanitarian' response and observance of the principle of non-refoulement.
How do non-signatory states engage with the international refugee regime, and what, if any, is the role of the Refugee Convention in these states?
How do legal aid actors work to improve protection for refugees in states that have not ratified the Refugee Convention?
BEYOND’s PI Maja Janmyr is invited to present the project at a closed members-only event at the Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Letters on December 10, 2020. The title of her lecture is: "Quo vadis the 1951 Refugee Convention? Global Refugee Protection Today and Tomorrow".
