Episode 21 - Protection, surrogacy and defining refugees
This episode of the GLAR podcast is a shared podcast with the Refugee Studies Centre at the University of Oxford. The featured presentation was recorded and edited at the University of Oxford, and GLAR is very grateful to the Centre for sharing it, so that we could also post a podcast version. Thanks in particular go to Catherine Briddick and Ruvi Ziegler for making this possible.
The podcast presentation is by Dr David Cantor (Director of the Refugee Law Initiative and Reader in International Human Rights Law at the School of Advanced Study, University of London School of Advanced Studies, University of London). Dr Cantor's presentation was entitled Protection, Surrogacy and Defining Refugees. It was recorded at Queen Elizabeth House, University of Oxford, on Thursday 12 May 2016, and was chaired by Dr Ruvi Ziegler (University of Reading and Refugee Studies Centre, Oxford).
The event was organised by the Refugee and Migration Law Discussion Group at the University of Oxford as well as being part of the 'Axis of Protection: Human Rights in International Law' series, which is convened collaboratively by colleagues at Reading, Durham, Exeter and Oxford. That series provides an opportunity for scholars to engage in discussion of contemporary and challenging issues concerning the protection of human rights in international law with emphasis on human rights law, international humanitarian law, and international refugee law. This year, the series has received a grant from the Society of Legal Scholars Small Projects and Events Fund.
