Application Deadline – 15th July, 10pm
The first ASILE Virtual Training Seminar will focus on refugee and asylum governance from an international comparative perspective by exploring the interaction between legislation, policies and practices that have been developed in different countries and world regions in order to implement the United Nations Global Compact for Refugees (UN GCR), and their compatibility with human rights and international refugee law.The UN GCR calls for more equitable and effective arrangements for responsibility sharing. It states that it is to be grounded in international refugee protection and international human rights instruments. The UN GCR places protection as an overall guide of application. The ETS will take the GCR guiding principles as points of departure. Adopting an interdisciplinary, multi-actor and multilevel perspective, this ETS examines the characteristics of international, regional and country-specific asylum governance instruments and arrangements in light of international and regional human rights and refugee laws.
