Emily Forbes is an alumna of the LLM in International Human Rights Law and Practice. Her dissertation, An Intersectional Approach to Alternative Care Models: A case study of asylum-seeking children at the Makeni Transit Centre in Zambia was recently published in the York Law Review. We warmly congratulate Emily for her achievement.
Discussing the paper, Emily wrote:
“As an avid believer that international law must be considered through an intersectional lens to ensure the necessary protection is provided to everyone, including those with minority identities, I was pleased to embark on this research which aims to improve the protection of girls and boys in alternative care models. My article explores adopting intersectionality as a tool to ensure the rights and well-being of asylum-seeking children residing in alternative care models are sufficiently protected. Considering international human rights law and international refugee law through an intersectional lens, this paper identifies best practices in such models.”
