The World Refugee Crisis: Why Won’t They Let Me In? - workshop

This course will cover the principles of refugee law and the durable solutions at the disposal of the international community. We will examine case studies to assess the willingness of states to accept and assist refugees past and present. It will include the growing negative refugee policies in wealthy western nations in Europe and the US, Israel’s policy towards non-Jewish refugees, the particular plight of unaccompanied children seeking refuge, and the willingness of first asylum countries in the Middle East and Africa to host refugees.
