About this webinar

Level: introductory

The Illegal Migration Act 2023 remains largely suspended due to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Rwanda case. With the new Safety of Rwanda Bill set to become law around Easter 2024, this webinar looks at how the new asylum system is supposed to operate in practice, if it is ever operationalised.

We explore the intricacies of the new non-asylum process and how it will be experienced by refugees, the government and lawyers. We cover the duty to remove, the ban on injunctions, the disapplication of human rights law, serious irreversible harm appeals and detention powers.


Colin Yeo is a barrister at Garden Court Chambers in London specialising in immigration and asylum law and the founder of Free Movement. He is the author of a textbook on refugee law and previously worked for the charities Immigration Advisory Service and Refugee Legal Centre.
