Nov 16 2022 Posted: 15:21 GMT

The Irish Centre for Human Rights continues its lunchtime seminar series with a seminar on 'Internally displaced persons and International Refugee Law' by Dr Bríd Ní Ghráinne from Maynooth University School of Law & Criminology. Bríd is a Bachelor of Civil Law (International) graduate from the University of Galway who went on to complete her PhD at the University of Oxford on the 'Challenges in the Relationship between the Protection of Internally Displaced Persons and Refugee Law'.

The seminar takes place at 1pm, Monday, 21st November 2022, in the Seminar Room, Irish Centre for Human Rights and also on Zoom. All are welcome to attend.

Dr Bríd Ní Ghráinne is an expert in Public International Law, particularly on the topic of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), which refers to the ca. 55 million people who have been forced to flee their homes but who remain within their states. The complexity of reasons for which IDPs flee has meant that her research spans human rights law, humanitarian law, disaster law, law of the sea, international refugee law, as well as general Public International Law. Bríd has published widely in these areas in leading journals such as Human Rights Law Review, International and Comparative Law Quarterly, Legal Studies, Refugee Survey Quarterly, and International Journal of Refugee Law. Her monograph entitled 'Internally Displaced Persons and International Refugee Law' was published with Oxford University Press in spring 2022.
