The latest issue of the Michigan Journal of International Law is out. This issue is dedicated to the exclusion clauses of the Refugee Convention, more in particular the exclusion of international criminals. Through the Sixth Colloquium on Challenges in International Refugee Law, a principled and workable framework has been developed to guide the considering of the exclusion from refugee status of persons believed to have committed international crimes. The ‘Michigan Guidelines on the Exclusion of International Criminals’ is the result. Earlier Guidelines were established on, amongst others, the topics of the Right to Work, Well-Founded Fear, the Internal Protection Alternative.
The Guidelines can be found here.
