On Friday, the Miller Institute for Global Challenges and the Law and the California Law Review will be hosting a symposium titled Sharing Responsibility for Refugees. Here's the pitch:
The 2018 Global Compact on Refugees enshrines the principle of responsibility sharing, to help the handful of developing countries that host the vast majority of the world’s refugees. But the United States, and other wealthy countries, are also pioneering “responsibility dumping” arrangements, that instead exacerbate global inequities and threaten the rights of refugees. The panelists will explore the political economy of responsibility sharing, including the role of race in its legal development and implementation. We will also consider international templates of responsibility and how responsibility sharing arrangements might be used by states to evade responsibility under international refugee law, and imagine possible futures of responsibility sharing, including new ways of defining its key components and its scope, both across and within international borders.
There are a number of great speakers in the lineup. Check it out!
