The right to work of asylum seekers and refugees: Leveraging and litigating for effectiveness?
The right to decent work is an important human right, one often denied asylum seekers and refugees across the globe. This webinar will explore the right to work in international law, and examine various attempts to render it effective across diverse contexts, both through litigation and political processes. It will assess attempts to leverage the right to work transnationally, and consider whether such processes pay due attention to decent work, in particular in contexts where informal work predominates.
Prior registration is required. To register please visit the event page on Eventbrite. Registered attendees will receive the login details via e-mail prior to the event.

This joint webinar is hosted by RefMig and ASILE in association with the Centre for Fundamental Rights at the Hertie School.
