Following the UK Supreme Court’s judgment against the Sunak administration’s ‘Rwanda policy’, the issue of irregular migration in the UK continues to be in the headlines. The government is now proposing emergency legislation to push through its plans. With tackling ‘small boats’, one of the prime minister’s five key priorities, the question is what happens next?
As European governments continue to struggle with irregular migration the issue is likely to feature heavily in looming elections in 2024, including in the UK.
At this event, experts put the Supreme Court case into context, reality-check recent assertions and discuss:
The significance of the Supreme Court decision, the government’s response, and what happens next.
The current challenges for the UK’s policy on combatting irregular migration and where the potential solutions might lie.
The role of international law and multilateral institutions.
The implications of the UK leaving the European Convention on Human Rights, for the UK and the wider world.
As with all member events, questions from the audience drive the conversation.
