The 5th Annual Conference of the Refugee Law Initiative (RLI) will take place from Wednesday 9 June to Friday 11 June 2021. The RLI Annual Conference is an annual international forum dedicated to debating the latest research and developments in the field. 

The 5th RLI Annual Conference builds on the success of previous RLI conferences in uniting refugee law academics, practitioners, policy-makers and students. Run this year as a virtual event over three (3) half-days, this Annual Conference is based on the principle of free and open access online to allow for truly global participation.

The chosen theme for this year’s conference - ‘Ageing Gracefully? The 1951 Refugee Convention at 70’ – reflects on the enduring legacy of the ‘cornerstone’ treaty for refugee protection 70 years after it was first adopted. 

We are pleased to release the full (draft) conference programme today!
