Event description
Expert Forum on the "UN Global Compacts for Migration and Refugees, the governance of migration, and the international protection regime".

About this event

Organized through Ryerson University in Toronto, this Expert Forum is a part of a research project entitled “PROTECT - The Right to International Protection: A Pendulum Between Globalization and Nativization” which is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). PROTECT is led by the University of Bergen in Norway and conducted by an international consortium of 11 universities in the European Union, Canada, and South Africa. It studies the impacts of the UN Global Compacts on the functioning of the international refugee protection system.

The goal of the Expert Forum is to explore whether, and how, the Global Compacts can positively impact the governance of migration and refugees in Canada and globally. The forum also assesses the GCM from the perspective of the international protection regime and addresses the question of whether (and how) the GCM can have an impact on both the individual rights of protection seekers and the international protection regime as a whole in Canada. The forum offers a space for discussion on the institutional and procedural dynamics of the Global Compacts while also taking stock of the role of relevant stakeholders, in particular policy-makers, civil society actors, and researchers.

Speakers to be announced.
