Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


In this chapter, the authors discuss two case studies to illustrate the way in which students can explore the human rights implications of national immigration laws and international law for migrants, challenge them, and pursue innovative ways in promoting the protection of migrant rights and social rights. The first case study derives from a higher education classroom setting in the United Kingdom, in which students explore the limitations of national and international immigration legal frameworks in the context of climate change. The second case study derives from a law clinic, focused on HIV, setting in Spain, through which students explore the relationship between health, immigration regulation, sexual orientation, and other gender issues, assessing how international and domestic legislation interact.
