LHR to host seminar on refugee protection, 23 July 2014
As part of Public Interest Law Gathering 2014, Lawyers for Human Rights (LHR) will host a day-long seminar on the state of refugee protection in South Africa. Panel discussions will focus on the refugee status determination system, labour rights, the special dispensation for Zimbabweans and the protection challenges caused by the on-going xenophobic attacks on refugee traders. The main aim of the workshop is to bring together civil society organizations, advocacy and refugee groups to deliberate and develop appropriate responses to these challenges. This day-long seminar takes place the day before the main programme of PILG, which occurs on 24 & 25 July 2014.
When: Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Where: University of the Witwatersrand, School of Law, Chalsty Auditorium
Time: 9:00 am to 16:30 pm
