Dear colleagues, 

Please join us for a panel discussion hosted by the Refugee Law Initiative on the 'Deportation of asylum seekers from Israel to Rwanda and the legality of transfer/relocation agreements', on Thursday 22 February, 6-8pm at Senate House in London.

View our event page for full details and to book: https://rli.sas.ac.uk/events/event/15603

Chair and moderator:

- Dr Ruvi Ziegler, Associate Professor in International Refugee Law, University of Reading; Academic Fellow, Inner Temple

Speakers:

- Shani Bar Tuvia, PhD candidate, 'Human Rights Under Pressure' programme, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

- Larry Bottinick, Senior Protection Officer, UNHCR (via skype)

- Dr Violeta Moreno-Lax, Associate Professor, Queen Mary Law School

On 1 January 2018, the Israeli government announced plans to indefinitely detain or forcibly 'relocate' thousands of Eritrean and Sudanese asylum seekers to countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, should they refuse to leave voluntarily (and receive a lump sum payment) by 31 March 2018. Israel currently hosts around 35,000 asylum seekers from Eritrea and Sudan (the latter are mostly from Darfur).

The plans have drawn considerable media attention and opposition from many, including UNHCR. Notwithstanding international outrage, the deportation plans represent a steady progression of Israel's asylum policy, and certain parallels can be drawn to relocation/third country agreements pursued by other countries. In a year when two new global compacts, on refugees and for safe, orderly and regular migration, will be debated, do such policies speak more to the future prospects for responsibility-sharing and protection than these global initiatives?

This timely and important panel discussion will draw together experts on International Refugee Law, on refugee policy and practice within Israel, and from UNHCR to speak about the legality of prospective deportations from Israel from a refugee law perspective, and explore what such policies might mean for global refugee policy moving forward. This event is open to the public and we encourage attendance by students, activists, academics, practitioners and anyone interested in these topics.

The panel discussion will be followed by a drinks reception.

Tickets are 5, but please contact us at [log in to unmask] if you're unable to cover the ticket fee. 

Best wishes,

Susan Reardon-Smith
