Public Law in a Hostile Environment – Supporting Destitute Migrants and Asylum Seekers

36 Public & Human Rights is delighted to announce the details of our Spring/Summer series of public law seminars, to be held in person at Gray’s Inn, helping to share information on defending rights in the content of the hostile environment.  After each seminar refreshments will be available at 4 Field Court.

Supporting Destitute Migrants and Asylum Seekers

Tues 20 June, 1800, Bingham Room, Gray’s Inn

An overview of recent cases, ongoing litigation and anticipated developments in the right not to be subjected to destitution under human rights legislation, statutory duties and the common law. The session will be of interest to public law and equalities practitioners who advise asylum seekers and migrants subject to ‘no recourse to public funds’.

A recording may be available after each seminar, and we may move towards a fully hybrid format.

NOTE: The Illegal Migration Bill, published after this series was planned, is potentially a very significant and far reaching step with profound constitutional and human rights implications.  A separate event dedicated to the Bill will be announced in due course.
