The Kaldor Centre Annual Conference brings together academics, practitioners and policymakers to discuss key challenges in international refugee law. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘From refugee emergency to protracted exile: The role of “time” in international protection’. The conference will be held on the 18 November and will explore various aspects of refugee protection through the lens of time. What are the implications of delay and expedited procedures for refugee status determination? How does the law shape refugees’ experience of time? Do we need to rethink the notions of ‘crisis’, ‘emergency’ and ‘development’ in refugee responses?
