Armed Conflict and Forced Migration Project

Professor Vincent Chetail. A Global Migration Centre self-funded project.
This project sheds lights on the multifaceted interactions between international humanitarian law, refugee law, criminal law and human rights law. While none of these branches can offer a definitive answer to the challenges faced by refugees in and fleeing from armed conflicts, the reach of the protection that they offer can only be understood through a comparative assessment. The project thus investigates their mutual influence with the aim of providing a holistic approach to refugee protection.
