The 6th Annual Conference of the Refugee Law Initiative (RLI) will take place from 29 June - 1 July 2022. The RLI Annual Conference is an annual international forum dedicated to debating the latest research and developments in the field. 

The 6th RLI Annual Conference builds on the success of previous RLI conferences in uniting refugee law academics, practitioners, policy-makers and students. Run as a virtual event over three half-days, the 6th RLI Annual Conference is dedicated to debating the latest research and developments in our field.

The chosen theme for this year’s conference is ‘Improving the Global Refugee Regime: From Theory to Practice?’.

Some speakers at our last (5th) RLI annual conference argued that the global refugee regime needs changing. Such proposals open topical debate around how a reconfigured refugee regime might look (e.g. new burden-sharing arrangements, a global oversight mechanism etc.). Yet they also raise difficult questions about the desirability and feasibility of such change. At this year’s 6th annual conference, the RLI challenges the refugee law/protection field to take this debate head on.

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