Event: In Europe, is Access to Asylum the Same as Access to Justice?


Is access to asylum the same as access to justice in Europe. 

This will be the main theme of The University of Ottawa Refugee Hub’s event. 

There has been an ongoing debate on whether asylum seekers are fully protected against non-refoulement if there is no guarantee that justice can be exercised and will be fully respected and upheld.  

Sylvie Sarolea,  a Professor at Université catholique de Louvain will talk about this during the event. 

Her main research interests are the relationship between national sovereignty and migrant rights and the harmonisation of EU asylum and migration law.

Date: Thursday, 30th of January 2020

Time: 11:30 a.m to 1:00 p.m 

Venue: Jock-Turcot University Centre, 85 University Private, Room 205, Ottawa
