Advocates Abroad and the University of Baltimore School of Law’s Center for International and Comparative Law (CICL) are excited to announce a new collaboration, reports Catherine Moore, coordinator for UB’s international law programs.

Moore will join Advocates Abroad as the academic project coordinator for the 2016-17 academic year. She will oversee the work of CICL fellows — who are J.D. students — on legal research projects related to the refugee and migrant crisis in Greece.

CICL fellows will work with Moore on policy papers and legal toolkits to be used by human-rights advocates abroad. Students will be able to link their theoretical knowledge of international law, human rights and humanitarian law to the current refugee situation, while also assisting the work of Advocates Abroad.

Currently, CICL fellows are developing a human-trafficking toolkit for advocates in Greece and Turkey; they are also working on policy papers on topics that include the detention of refugees/migrants and discrimination on the basis of nationality. The project will tentatively culminate in a field mission by CICL fellows in March.
