The Monash University, in collaboration with the University of London and Warwick University, is organizing a Conference on the topic ‘Access to asylum: Current challenges and future directions’. The aim of this international conference is to determine how best to safeguard the rights of asylum seekers in balance with the responsibilities of states. It will analyse relevant standards under regional instruments, international human rights law, and the 1951 Convention. Some of the confirmed speakers are: Prof Deborah Anker (Harvard Law School), Dr David Cantor (Refugee Law Initiative, University of London), and Volker Turk (Director of International Protection, UNHCR).
