The Child in International Refugee Law
Children are the victims of some of the most devastating examples of state-sanctioned and private human rights abuse. In increasing numbers, they are attempting to find international protection, and are forced to navigate complex administrative and legal processes that fail to take into account their distinct needs and vulnerabilities. Drawing on research undertaken for his recent monograph, The Child in International Refugee Law (CUP, 2017), Jason will explore the extent to which the challenges faced by children seeking international protection may be overcome by greater engagement between international refugee law and international law on the rights of the child.
