Global Protection of Refugees

Module code: LLBP 5323

Module description

What kinds of risk should be accepted as a basis for refugee status? Who should we protect and care for - and who should we exclude? Can illegal entry, people smuggling and human trafficking be effectively controlled without preventing refugees from reaching sanctuary? Under what circumstances should people be detained as part of immigration control - and should children be detained? As we consider these and other questions, we'll bear in mind the lived experiences of human migration.
