Dr Velluti has recently contributed to a report on the UK experience in relation to migration and law. The report has been drafted in response to a questionnaire issued by the International Academy of Comparative Law (the ‘IACL’) on migration and law for the forthcoming 19th International Congress of Comparative Law, to be held in Vienna (Austria) in July 2014.
The report consists of two parts. The first part, entitled ‘Migration and Residence’, examines the principal legal instruments that bind the state and public authorities in matters of migration. The second part, entitled ‘Migration in a Broader Perspective’, situates the principal legal rules on migration, in force in the UK, into their broader historical and international context. Dr Velluti has contributed to the second part of the report and, in particular, on the section on the role of human rights and humanitarian protection, with a focus on domestic law and practice concerning the asylum process.
