The ‘Refugee Law in Context’ short course explores aspects of Australian refugee law and policy in a regional and international context. It examines the international and domestic legal frameworks for dealing with refugees. It also considers the political and social context in which law and policy is formulated and applied. Throughout the course the role of law in promoting refugee protection is evaluated; areas requiring reform are identified; and strategies for change considered.
The presenter, Dr Savitri Taylor, is an Associate Professor in the Law School at La Trobe University. She has been researching and publishing on refugee law and asylum policy at the national, regional and international level for over 25 years. She is also very involved with the refugee sector in Australia and the region.
