Please join the Society for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (SIRR) for a coffee break on Tuesday afternoon at 1:10 pm with Nuala Mole from the AIRE Centre (Advice on Individual Rights in Europe). The AIRE Centre has hosted an intern from CLS for the past 26 years, and this is a great opportunity to learn more about the AIRE Centre’s work on asylum, children's rights, and more - read more below.

Please rsvp here if you plan to attend (nonbinding, just to give us a headcount), or if you are unable to attend but would like to hear more information at a later date.

Coffee and snacks will be served!

Nuala Mole founded the AIRE Centre and has worked for more than 25 years in the field of human rights. Initially specializing in immigration and asylum, she has broadened her work to include all aspects of international human rights law. She has written extensively on all aspects of the European Convention on Human Rights and on the free movement of persons under European Union law, with special attention to the interface between the two legal orders.

The AIRE Centre is a voluntary organization based in London which gives specialized information and advice throughout Europe on international human rights law and the rights of individuals under EU law. It specializes in litigation before the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice on issues such as asylum, domestic and gender-based violence, human trafficking, and social assistance. SIRR recently hosted Markella Papadouli from the AIRE Centre for a discussion on asylum and human trafficking in Europe, including an overview of international law of the sea and its relation to international refugee law.
