Refugee Law for Egypt

Posted on 13 June 2016

Martin Jones will be chairing an expert consultation on a new draft refugee law for Egypt.

The consultation will take place in Geneva during UNHCR's annual meeting with non-governmental organisations.  Experts on refugee law and policy from North America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia will discuss the new draft law.  The draft law was the result of more than three years of consultations with refugee community leaders in Egypt, UNHCR and local stakeholders.  Martin collaborated in the drafting of the law with his colleagues at the Egyptian Foundation for Refugee Rights, the largest organisation in Egypt providing representation to refugees facing Egyptian judicial and administrative proceedings.
