The Model International Mobility Convention: Beyond Migrants and Refugees
Please join the Human Rights Program for a talk by Michael Doyle, University Professor at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. In this lecture, Professor Doyle will identify key features and justifications for a global convention on international mobility. Drafted by thirty-plus experts in refugee law, migration law, sociology, economics, and political science, the Model International Mobility Convention is a decade-long agenda for reform. It offers a comprehensive and cumulative set of rights and responsibilities from the minimal rights needed by international visitors on a short stay to the full set of rights needed by refugees who have lost their national rights in their countries of origin due to persecution.
Lunch will be served. Co-sponsored by the Human Rights Program, the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic, the Harvard Human Rights Journal, and HLS Advocates for Human Rights.
