By Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, OHCHR, 6 September 2016
A speech by Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, The Hague, Monday, 05 September 2016 Dear Friends, I wish to address this short statement to Mr. Geert Wilders, his acolytes, indeed to all those like him – the populists, demagogues and political...

In December last year, the Council of Europe's Steering Committee on Human Rights (CDDH) published a report on the longer-term future of the system of the European Convention on Human Rights ("the Convention"). There were two challenges which particularly struck me: firstly, prolonged...

Even before Rhuppiah v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2016] EWCA Civ 803, lawyers and Judges have engaged in mental gymnastics worthy of the Olympic stadium when applying Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights in immigration cases. It's complicated. Parliament added...

The Supreme Court heard the appeal in R (Agyarko) v Secretary of State for the Home Department on 6-7 April 2016. It concerned the correct test to be applied where an individual unlawfully present in the UK asserts that they should be permitted to remain in the UK as a result of their relationship...

While the points-based system will be more than familiar to nearly all EIN members, anyone not working within the field of immigration in the UK could be forgiven for thinking that such a system was a purely Australian concept, based on the calls for the UK to adopt the Australian system by the...

The Respondent was a journalist from Somalia...

The stream of case law on Parliament's new statutory human rights framework for Article 8 immigration cases has disgorged another important but unhelpful decision: MA (Pakistan) and others v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2016] EWCA Civ 705. MA (Pakistan) concerned the '7-year...

"What if…?" These kinds of questions may now seem pointless in the aftermath of the victory of Leave in the EU Referendum. Instead we hear 'What's done is done', 'Leave means Leave', 'out is out', etc., etc., etc. But one question has always nagged at...

COUNTDOWN TO THE REFERENDUM: A series of articles by Matrix that will explore a number of legal topics surrounding the UK referendum on 23 June 2016. Immigration and Brexit Nick Armstrong is a member of the Matrix immigration team, and most of his EU work is that in that context. He regularly...

About the guest blog

EIN's guest blog is intended as a platform where we gather together some of the best of immigration law blogging. And it is a platform where you can post your opinions, commentary or analysis on immigration and asylum law.

If you're a seasoned blogger, of if you've always wanted to blog but never found an audience, blogging on EIN is a way of ensuring your opinions are available to read on a leading immigration law website.

EIN encourages your blog submissions.

You can send your submissions to us at support@ein.org.uk.

Blog submissions should ideally be on the theme of immigration or asylum law, but we're happy to receive submissions on more general immigration topics.

Please also contact us if you already have an immigration law blog that you'd like us to syndicate. We'll select and publish a regular number of your blog posts on topics that we think will be of interest to EIN's readers.
