This reading group will explore the interface between international human rights law and the regulation of migration (or “immigration law”). How do, or should, human rights of migrants constrain national policies for migration control and enforcement? Readings will include primary materials from international bodies, which have taken different approaches to these issues, and analyses by scholars and advocates.

Note: This reading group will meet on the following dates: 1/26, 2/9, 2/23, 3/9, 3/30, and 4/13.
