Melbourne: Seminar – Migration Control & Access to Asylum

MRSP members are welcome to attend this seminar organised by the Institute for International Law and the Humanities (IILAH) and convened by Professor Michelle Foster of the Melbourne Law School.
Cooperation on migration control and access to asylum: questions of state responsibility
presented by Nikolas Tan (Aarhus University and the Danish Institute for Human Rights)
Australia has led the way in migration control efforts in the past 15 years, through a far-reaching non-entrée regime with regional countries of origin and transit. Such cooperation arrangements challenge the reach of human rights and refugee law and raises questions about international law more broadly.
This presentation firstly provides a typology of cooperation-based migration control measures, undertaken with a range of regional states, including origin and transit countries. The presentation secondly discusses the human rights and refugee law questions raised by such policies, through the lens of state responsibility. Finally, the presentation compares Australian and European cooperation arrangements in this area.
