Do International Systems Continue to Serve Us? A Case Study of International Refugee Law @ 140 McLaughlin College, Senior Common Room

Does the international refugee system continue to serve us? Founded in 1951, the United Nations Refugee Convention was a promising document meant to protect the most vulnerable. With protracted refugee situations on the rise and many nations resisting the legitimacy of the international order, can we continue to rely on the current international refugee system to meet the protection needs of refugees? This talk will focus on the case study of Calais, France.
