Ruvi Ziegler at the 10th constitutional court review conference in Johannesburg

 Dr Ziegler has been keeping busy during his research visit to South Africa, under the auspices of the South Africa Research Chair in International Law (SARCIL)

Last Month, he participated in the 10th constitutional court review conference in Johannesburg, presenting a paper on ‘effective access to refugee protection in South Africa’ alongside Justice Kapindu of Malawi High Court (a conference report is available here).

In September, Dr Ziegler gave invited talks about “No Asylum for ‘infiltrators’: Israel’s Dysfunctional asylum system” at the Refugee Rights Unit, University of Cape Town and at the African Centre for Migration and Society, University of Witwatersrand.

He also chaired a panel at the ‘Beyond 50 and 10 beyond the rhetoric: international conference on the protection of forced migrants in Africa’ hosted by the centre for human rights at the University of Pretoria.
