Martin Jones, a lecturer in international human rights law at the Centre for Applied Human Rights, will be presenting a paper entitled "Developing The Law of Asylum in Asia: Asian Exceptionalism Revisited" at the 9th annual conference of Asian Law Institutes (ASLI) at the Faculty of Law of the National University in Singapore from 31 May to 1 June 2012. Martin's paper is based upon his ongoing research on the theory and practice of refugee law in Asia. Martin will be speaking on a panel with representatives of the New Zealand Human Rights Commission, the Universiti Teknologi MARA in Malaysia, and the National Law School of India.
The ASLI annual conferences examine contemporary legal issues of interest to Asian countries and gather scholars and experts from the member institutions of the 47 academic organisations that belong to the network of Asian Law Institutes as well as from other academic institutions in Asia and beyond. The ASLI annual conferences represent one of the largest opportunities to present and discuss research on law in Asia to an audience of both practitioners and scholars.
