About the project

The role of international law in the sensitive field of migration is complex, ambiguous and frequently neglected. International Migration Law Project is aimed at better understanding the scope and content of international legal norms governing the movement of persons.

The current legal framework is scattered throughout a wide array of principles and rules belonging to numerous branches of international law (including refugee law, human rights law, humanitarian law, labour law, trade law, maritime and air law, criminal law, nationality law, consular and diplomatic law, etc.). However such fragmentation undermines and impedes the understanding and, consequently, the effective implementation of international law in this area. The main objective of the International Migration Law Project is to clarify the role and impact of this multifaceted legal framework.
