Save the Date for the Journal of National Security Law & Policy annual symposium!
This year’s symposium is The Border and Beyond: The National Security Implications of Migration, Refugees, and Asylum Under US and International Law.
Join us on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at Georgetown Law.
In addition to three panels, the symposium also will feature a lunchtime keynote speech by Elisa Massimino, President and CEO of Human Rights First, one of the nation’s preeminent human rights advocacy organizations.
- Panel 1: Immigration, Homeland Security, and the Constitution
Panelists will engage in debate on various constitutional issues, such as the separation of powers and the protection of civil liberties, in the context of recent events in the US in which both migration and national security have been implicated.
- Panel 2: The US Refugee and Asylum Legal Regime
Panelists will explore the current status of US asylum and refugee laws and how the screening processes factor into national concerns. The panel will also discuss the Trump administration's recent executive orders relating to border security and refugee policy in the US.
- Panel 3: Migration and Security Threats Abroad
Panelists will discuss the security implications of the refugee crisis in Europe and the potential legal obligations that the US might have under international law to assist its allies in handling the situation.
A reception will follow the event.
