Our VULNER project member, Delphine Nakache, leader of the work package on Canada, is taking part in the upcoming webinar "Opportunity or Threat: Receiving Refugees in Canada and the Effects of the Global Compacts on Refugees and Migrants".
Organizer of the webinar is the EU Horizon 2020 sister project PROTECT - The Right to International Protection. It is held as an PROTECT Expert Forum, which aims to discuss the implementation and performance of the Global Compacts on Refugees and Migrants.
In this webinar, an expert panel will address current challenges of Canadian refugee protection, both in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic and to existing obligations and legal frameworks. Providing views from different institutions, the speakers will consider challenges faced by refugees in specific contexts including employment, healthcare and detention.
In doing so, it will assess Canada’s performance in realizing the objectives of the Global Compacts on Migrants and Refugees – as well as existing human rights and refugee protection frameworks.
The webinar is on Friday, November 20th 2020 at 10:00 - 11:30 (EST).
