The Northeastern University Law Review will hold a symposium, “Rethinking Borders: Climate Change, Migration and Human Rights” at Northeastern University School of Law n November 2, 2018. The law review’s annual symposium is an interdisciplinary gathering of legal scholars, practitioners and advocates who engage in dialogue on contemporary legal issues. This year, the symposium participants will examine the interplay between migration, human rights and climate change, with the goal of developing innovative solutions to the current immigration and refugee crisis. Panels will explore how borders are expressed as both natural forms and as human-made barriers via laws and policies.


The symposium will be held from 9:30 am to 5:00 p.m. at Northeastern University School of Law, 65 Forsyth Street, 240 Dockser Hall. For more information about the schedule and panels, please visit or contact the symposium editors — Anna Maria Annino and Taarika C. Sridhar — at


Co-sponsored by the Center for Public Interest Advocacy and Collaboration (CPIAC), the Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy (PHRGE), the NUSL chapter of the International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law.
