Announcing a New Edition of Law and Critique

The edition contains a timely supplement on the role of law in the current refugee displacement crisis, authored by School of Law staff.

The latest edition of Law and Critique (vol 27, issue 1, 2016) has been published. The journal, which has a long association with the School of Law at Birkbeck, includes a supplement critically examining the role of law in the current refugee crisis.

The journal contains a timely supplement on the role of law in the current refugee displacement crisis. "Refugees at the Borders of Europe" is edited by Elena Loizidou and features essays by Birkbeck School of Law’s Patricia Tuitt, Stewart Motha, Michelle Everson and Nadine El-Enany.

The authors set out to demystify the legal, political and economic discourses that the European Union has used to describe the refugee crisis; and also address the way the public engage with this humanitarian, man-made disaster.
