As a reminder, RefNotes are shorter pieces (approximately 500 words) focused on emerging current events that concern global issues that may impact refugee law. These pieces include less analysis, but help followers of stay current on dynamic refugee law issues.

Our content has two criteria: 1) International focused and 2) Legal in nature. The note should concern multiple jurisdictions and should not be based solely on one country’s policy or decision. Of course one country’s policy can be the main focus of the note, but it should act as a springboard to discuss how this country’s policy will influence other countries’ policies or other states’ obligations to the refugee population. The note should be based on a court’s decision, a new law being debated, or a global event that can be analyzed from the Refugee Convention or a related treaty.

Please feel free to submit a finalized note or note proposal below. We look forward to working with you!
