Doughty Street barristers submit written evidence to Commons Select Committee on International Development


Wayne Jordash QC, Max du Plessis, Tatyana Eatwell and Jelia Sane have submitted written evidence to the International Development Committee’s Inquiry into  forced displacement and humanitarian responses in Central and East Africa.  The Inquiry will investigate the challenges posed by forced migration in sub-Saharan Africa, a region which hosts an estimated 4.4 million refugees, and the adequacy of regional and international responses, including in particular the role of the UK’s DFID.  In this context, the written submissions examine the international legal framework applicable to Kenya’s recent decision to close down Dadaab, the world’s largest refugee camp, and return Somali refugees to their country of origin  on the  grounds of national and economic security.


The Inquiry has also received evidence from Médecins Sans Frontières, the International Committee of the Red Cross and Human Rights Watch amongst others.
