Administrative Justice in the Global Context: The Case of UNHCR Refugee Status Determination

June 1, 2016
12:30 - 13:30

Moot Court, Building 67 Room 202

PRESENTED BY DR NIAMH KINCHIN SCHOOL OF LAW UNIVERSITY OF WOLLONGONG

When decisions made by public authorities affect a person’s rights and interests there is an expectation, in democratic societies at least, that the administrative processes used to make those decisions are carried out according to law and in a way that society considers ‘just’. In short, we have come to expect administrative justice. But what does administrative justice mean beyond the domestic context? How are procedural rights to be protected and accountability to be ensured in the fluid, evolving and fragmented sphere of global governance? This seminar considers this question in relation to the refugee status determination (RSD) procedures of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
