Exeter Law School hosts a talk by Dr Louise Arimatsu
On Wednesday 16 March 2016, Dr Louise Arimatsu spoke on the legal protection of displaced persons at the second seminar in the annual series 'Axis of Protection: Human Rights in International Law'.
The 'Axis of Protection: Human Rights in International Law' series was inaugurated in 2013 and is co-organized by the Universities of Durham, Exeter, Oxford, and Reading. The scheme provides an opportunity for scholars to engage in discussion of contemporary and challenging issues concerning the protection of human rights in international law with emphasis on human rights law, international humanitarian law, and international refugee law. This year, the series has received a grant from the Society of Legal Scholars Small Projects and Events Fund, which therefore partially funded this event.
The second seminar for the year took place at Exeter Law School on Wednesday 16 March 2016, featuring Dr Louise Arimatsu (LSE) who gave a talk on the Protection of Displaced Persons in Armed Conflict. Dr Arimatsu’s presentation focussed on the applicable legal frameworks providing protection to persons displaced by reasons related to armed conflicts in the context of the ongoing migration crisis in Europe. The presentation was followed by a formal response given by Dr Ana Beduschi and a lively discussion. The seminar was attended by around 20 staff and students. The session was chaired by Dr Kubo Mačák
