Moritz Baumgärtel, “Europe’s Refugee Crisis and the Rights of Migrants: What Role for Europe’s Supranational Courts?”


Please join visiting scholar Moritz Baumgärtel, a PhD candidate from the Université libre de Bruxelles, for a lecture titled “Europe’s Refugee Crisis and the Rights of Migrants: What Role for Europe’s Supranational Courts?”

 

With large numbers of asylum seekers arriving in Europe, to what extent have the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice been used to strengthen the precarious rights of asylum seekers and refugees? Baumgärtel’s research focuses on the intersection of migrant rights and human rights in litigation before these European supranational courts.

 

Lunch will be served. For more information, or to RSVP, please contact Ali Prince at ali.prince@law.duke.edu.

 

Co-sponsored by the International Human Rights Clinic, the Center for International & Comparative Law, Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, International Law Society and Human Rights Law Society, and the Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute.
