Thursday, 01 June 2000 to Saturday, 03 June 2000
Hosted by Dr Matthew J Gibney
Sixteen especially selected participants discussed the various forms of legal regime for forced migrants that could be created over the next 20 years. Areas addressed included the 1951 Geneva Convention; the effects of globalisation; lessons from current practice; the relationship between humanitarian and refugee law; and the role of development and intervention in addressing the causes of movement and flight. The workshop was coordinated by Dr Matthew Gibney and was sponsored by the Ford Foundation.
