The Adelaide Law School invites you to attend a free public lecture sponsored by the European Union Centre for Global Affairs presented by Professor Friedemann Kainer titled ‘Europe’s response to the refugee crisis: legal foundations and political limitations to a fair solution’.
Against the background of the Geneva Convention and European fundamental rights, Professor Friedemann will discuss Europe’s legal ways and political means to solve or soothe the current refugee crisis. In doing so he will examine the legal bases of European asylum, refugee and immigration law, as it has developed since the Maastricht Treaty of 1993: the law on the one hand and political developments on the other.
