The 1951 Refugee Convention was a major advance for the protection of people under persecution, defining the concept of refugees and the legal obligation of States to provide them with protection. However, the current system has been put under great stress by the scale and complexity of recent developments, which was the motivation for organizing the UN High-Level Plenary on Addressing Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants in September 2016. Having an understanding of the relevant legal frameworks for the protection of refugees is, in this context, critical for those working in the humanitarian sector.
This learning session will provide an introduction to refugee law and other legal frameworks grating protection to refugees. Participants will be provided with a presentation on the fundamental concepts in these legal frameworks and their legal and operational limitations. Following this, there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.
NOTE: A separate learning session will be organized on the legal protection of internally displaced persons.

For the past ten years, Beacon Academy has hosted a Symposium here at Temple Israel- a powerful gathering of students, parents and teaching professionals for an ongoing and straightforward discussion of the issues of race and class at elite schools. This year, largely motivated by news events in recent months/years- and because if the gravity of the November elections, we've decide to broaden our scope. On October 21st, we are assembling a panel of Beacon graduates - and some of their parents- who are either current independent secondary school students, college students or recent college grads who are now part of an impressive emerging class of young, educated and motivated black and brown voters.
It promises to be an open, robust and inspirational morning- I hope you will register to join us and share this invitation with colleagues, parents and students you feel may have an interest.
