Please join visiting scholar Moritz Baumgärtel, a PhD candidate from the Université libre de Bruxelles, for a lecture titled “Europe’s Refugee Crisis and the Rights of Migrants: What Role for Europe’s Supranational Courts?” With large numbers of asylum seekers arriving in Europe, to what extent have the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice been used to strengthen the precarious rights of asylum seekers and refugees? Baumgärtel’s research focuses on the intersection of migrant rights and human rights in litigation before these European supranational courts.
This event is co-sponsored by Duke Law’s International Human Rights Clinic, Center for International and Comparative Law, Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute, and the International Law Society and the Human Rights Law Society.
