Description

Workshop: ‘Terrorism and Asylum’

Refugee Law Initiative, University of London

Friday 8 December 2017


Fears that refugee flows may facilitate the entry of terrorist elements are amply demonstrated by State responses to the refugee crises in Syria and Iraq. Such concerns about the prevalence of terrorism in today’s world have direct consequences for the legal protection of refugees and asylum-seekers. This informal one-day workshop aims to promote reflection on links between ‘terrorism’ and ‘asylum’ on the part of scholars and practitioners working in these fields of study.
