The Refugee Law Initiative has recently published two new pieces on our RLI blog (www.rli.blogs.sas.ac.uk) that may be of interest.
The first, “Designating ‘Vulnerability’: The asylum claims of women and sexual minorities” by Dr Moira Dustin (University of Sussex) was published as a contribution to Refugee Week 2017, and outlines some of the challenges that women and sexual minorities face in claiming asylum. Dr Dustin argues that there is a need for more responsive and nuanced approaches to move past a reliance on 'vulnerability' in arguing these cases. https://rli.blogs.sas.ac.uk/2017/06/19/designating-vulnerability-the-asylum-claims-of-women-and-sexual-minorities-2/
The second piece, entitled “Allocation of Responsibility in Times of ‘Crisis’: The Impact of the Exit and Entry Human Rights Principles on Responsibility-Sharing in the EU”, is written by RLI Research Affiliate Paolo Biondi (School of Advanced Study, University of London). He writes on the allocation of responsibility in the EU asylum system through analysing the recent approach of the European and national courts in interpreting the Dublin Regulation (DR) in the context of protection of fundamental rights. https://rli.blogs.sas.ac.uk/2017/06/26/allocation-of-responsibility-in-times-of-crisis-the-impact-of-the-exit-and-entry-human-rights-principles-on-responsibility-sharing-in-the-eu/
