IG member Marjoleine Zieck just published her article ‘Refugees and the Right to Freedom of Movement: From Flight to Return’ in the Michigan Journal of International Law (Vol. 39, Issue 1). This background study focuses on the right to freedom of movement of refugees. It reviews the law pertaining to this freedom from the perspective of the spatial journey of refugees. This focus on the law means that extralegal considerations will not be taken into consideration. The analysis will not proceed from any perceived need for limits that should be accepted as “a product of realism about the strains that migration, especially high-volume migration or sudden influxes, can bring to a society.” The article is available for downloading here.
