Refugee Law is a seminar class which will examine the essential principles and process as related to refugee law both in Canada and internationally. We will consider, amongst others, the Refugee Convention, the Canadian Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and Regulation, and will look to significant players including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Students will also observe the relationship between the refugee law, human rights law and administrative Law. We will also examine the effect of environmental changes such as global warming which will result in massive population shift. The process and criteria for the attainment, denial, and withdrawal of refugee status underpin much of the class content.
