The Sydney Centre for International Law is a hub of international legal thought and debate in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Sydney Centre for International Law was established in 2003 as a centre of excellence in research and teaching in international law. The centre fosters innovative, interdisciplinary scholarship across the international legal field, and also provides an avenue for the public to access international legal expertise. It operates within the University of Sydney Law School, building upon its well-recognised history of strength in this area.
The centre is managed by a committee comprised of the following associates: Irene Baghoomians, Chester Brown, Emily Crawford, Mary Crock, David Kinley, Jacqueline Mowbray, Rowan Nicholson, Luke Nottage, Ben Saul and Tim Stephens.
The inaugural Children, Migration and the Right to Health Conference, was held on 25 - 26 July 2019 at Sydney Law School. It examined key issues facing the world's child migrants, including in relation to their right to healthcare, education and other social services, and the ways the law can be used to effect change in immigration detention.
The conference focused on the workshopping of new guidelines on Working with Migrant Children and Young People Seeking Protection.
