The global mobility of people, the security of the nation and questions of citizenship are issues at the forefront of public policy and debate in Australia and globally. Across all these issues run questions about the role that courts play in checking the power of the legislative and executive arms of government and to uphold human rights. On this panel, experts from the ANU College of Law will speak about how their research connects with these public policy issues in Australia and internationally.

Who should attend?

Academics interested in public policy issues like global mobility of people, the security of the nation and questions of citizenship and the role that courts play in checking the power of the legislative and executive arms of government and to uphold human rights.
