Intermediate: Refugee law in the UK: 3 CPD

Welcome to our course on refugee law in the UK! The 1951 UN Convention on the Status of Refugees, widely known as just “the Refugee Convention”, is said to be the legal instrument that has saved the most lives in history. This course explores how the Convention, which is international by its nature and scope, applies and is interpreted in the UK, drawing on EU law on refugee protection.

The course is only available to paying members of Free Movement. If you are not already a member, you can join here and access not just this course but all of our courses. Membership starts from £20 per month and you can cancel at any time.

Alternatively, you can buy a copy of our ebook on the Refugee Convention here. It includes most of the material in the course but without the key points videos.
