The Coordinating Committee of the ESIL Interest Group on Migration and Refugee Law warmly invites you to attend our Interest Group workshop in Manchester on 13 September 2018 in the framework of the 14th Annual Conference of the European Society of International Law.
We have been able to put together two promising panels addressing the UN Global Compacts on Migration and Refugees. Will present their papers:
Giovanni Carlo Bruno (National Research Council, Italy), “Available pathways for regular migration: low-skilled migrants, fundamental rights, and the Global Compact”
Vincent Chetail (Graduate Institute, Geneva), “The Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration: A Normative Kaleidoscope of International Migration Law”
Marion Panizzon (University of Bern; NCCR), “What is a Compact? Migrants’ Rights and State Responsibilities Regarding the Design of the UN Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration” (co-authored with: Thomas Gammeltoft Hansen, Elspeth Guild, Violeta Moreno-Lax and Isobel Roele) (tbc)
Chao Yi (McGill University), “Root Causes and Burden/Responsibility-Sharing: Where Are the Countries of Origin in The Global Compact on Refugees?”
Maria Varaki (Erik Castren Institute of International Law and Human Rights, Helsinki), “Ethical leadership and Global Compacts. A test of phronesis and humanity”
