Research Seminar with Catherine Dauvergne and Audrey Macklin

On 23 September 2019, the ACMRL section organized a seminar entitled “Gender, Sexuality and the Refugee Definition”. The seminar was inspired by the PhD Thesis Defense of Younous Arbaoui, with will take place on 24 September, 11:45 at the VU. In the seminar, issues and dilemma’s regarding refugee claims based on gender and sexuality were discussed on the basis of presentations from Thomas Spijkerboer (Professor of migration law at VU University), and Andrea Grønningsæter, PhD Candidate and the University of Bergen (Norway). We thank Professor Catherine Dauvergne (University of British Colombia) and Professor Audrey Macklin (University of Toronto) for their insightful comments on the presentations and we thank all IMRL students for attending and participating in the event.
