The RLI Annual Conference offers a dedicated annual forum internationally to share and debate the latest research and cutting-edge developments in refugee protection. This conference builds on the success of the previous annual conferences that united academics, practitioners, policy-makers and students in considering pressing challenges to refugee law.

This year’s special theme – ‘Rethinking the “Regional” in Refugee Law and Policy’ – reflects on how a host of ‘regional’ questions loom large for refugee protection in 2019. The keynote speakers for the event are:

Professor Elena Fiddian Qasmiyeh
Professor in Migration and Refugee Studies, and Co-Director of the Migration Research Unit; Coordinator of UCL’s Refuge in a Moving World Research Network

Professor Vicent Chetail
