The UCT Refugee Rights Unit (RRU), as a member of the ASILES project, contributed towards the first ASILE Forum to assess the European Commission’s Pact on Migration and Asylum considering the UN Global Compact on Refugees and EU law.

The RRU’s contribution titled  Migration Management: The Antithesis of Refugee Protection – The Case of South Africa, drew parallels between policies in South Africa regarding migration and those proposed in the new EU Pact on Migration and Asylum, to contribute to practical and legal knowledge on the effects of such policies in the EU.
