Hosted by Border Criminologies and the Refugee Studies Centre (University of Oxford) with The Dickson Poon School of Law (King’s College London).

This panel is the third and final of a series which examines the Supreme Court’s judgment in R (on the application of AAA and others) v SSHD.

This seminar considers the UK Government’s response to the judgment, in particular the new UK-Rwanda Agreement and the Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill. Our speakers will analyse these developments, placing them within a broader context of post-Brexit politics and international protection.
