The explosive President: Donald Trump’s migration policy and its impact on international law and non-discrimination principles

Presented by ANU College of Law

Recent executive orders issues by President Donald Trump have shocked many and created an unprecedented travel crisis. Many have spoken against the President criticising the travel ban as discriminatory and unjustified. In response to the order Judge James Robart granted a temporary restraining order with nationwide effect suspending the ban. The events are likely to culminate in the US Supreme Court.

During this panel discussion, ANU College of Law experts in the field of migration law, refugee law and anti-discrimination law will evaluate the impact of Donald Trump’s recent policies on refugees, migrants and minorities and will discuss what these policies mean for international law as well as migration and non-discrimination laws globally.
