    With: Michel Agier, Ashley Caudill-Mirillo, Olivier Legros, Philip Schrag
    Hosted by: John Schwartz
    Co-presented with the Cooper Union

    Conflicts and natural disasters bring their new waves of refugees and reveal the gap between asylum law as defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights–“everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution”–and its practical application. Asylum is defined by precise legal criteria that will be explained by Philip Schrag. These criteria are questioned by Romanian and Bulgarian Roma settled in big European cities on which Olivier Legros wrote extensively. Ashley Caudill-Mirillo will share her experience adjudicating applications. From the results of several field studies on refugees and migrants in Africa and Europe, Michel Agier showed in his books that encampment and humanitarian government reinforce the exclusion of displaced people, and demonstrates the ambiguity of the links between asylum, refuge and hospitality.
