‘Refugee Protection in a Hostile World?’
Third Annual Conference, Refugee Law Initiative, University of London
18 - 19 July 2018
The RLI Annual Conference offers a dedicated annual forum internationally to share and debate the latest research and cutting-edge developments in refugee protection. This conference builds on the success of the previous annual conferences that united academics, practitioners, policy-makers and students in considering pressing challenges to refugee law.
This year’s special theme – ‘Refugee Protection in a Hostile World?’ - reflects on an apparent strengthening of long-standing currents of anti-refugee feeling and other forms of instability in the world. This trend raises urgent questions about its present and future impact on refugee protection globally, as well as the interaction between global politics and refugee law.
Our keynote speakers for the event are:
• E. Tendayi Achiume (Special Rapporteur on Contemporary forms of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance)
• Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen (Raoul Wallenberg Institute)
• Jean-François Durieux (Refugee Law Initiative)

Special Workshop: Revitalising IDP Research
20 Years of the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement
Refugee Law Initiative, University of London
20 July 2018
Join us for a dedicated one-day workshop on ‘Revitalising IDP Research’ to celebrate 20 years of the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement. This 20th anniversary of the adoption in 1998 of the UN Guiding Principles offers a unique opportunity to reflect not only on their influence on internal displacement globally but also on the global state of research and practice on internally displaced persons (IDPs).
This Special IDP Workshop provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and students to come together to present, debate and reflect on this field and its future. It offers the chance to begin developing new research and policy agendas and collaborations.
Our keynote speaker for the event is:
• Cecilia Jimenez-Damary (UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights of internally displaced persons)
