Protection from Refuge

Kate Ogg
In this seminar, Kate presents her doctoral research on the role courts play in one of the most significant problems facing the international refugee protection regime: that the places in which people seek refuge are often as dangerous and bleak as the conditions they fled. Kate’s case studies across four continents indicate that legal decision-makers have, at times, played a powerful role in facilitating refugees’ journeys in search of sanctuary but have ultimately compounded the difficulties inherent in finding genuine refuge.

Chinatowns and the rise of China

Ien Ang
This paper discusses how Chinatowns today are increasingly contested sites where older diasporic understandings of Chineseness are unsettled by newer, neoliberal ones, dominated by the pull of China’s newly found economic might. In particular, the so-called ‘rise of China’ has spawned a globalisation of the idea of ‘Chinatown’ itself, with its actual uptake in urban development projects the world over, or backlash against it, determined by varying perceptions of China’s global ascendancy as an amalgam of ‘threat’ and ‘opportunity’.

Compensation under Investment Treaties – as if Host Interests Mattered

Emma Aisbett
In response to the growing crisis of legitimacy of the international investment treaty regime, we propose a new liability and compensation rule based on a law & economics understanding of the function of these treaties. While our rule does not always achieve a global first-best, it does ensure that participation in treaties brings benefits for both “host” and “source” states. This Pareto-improving property contrasts to the existing regime or previous canonical compensation rules.
