Professor Guy S. Goodwin-Gill

MA, DPhil
Emeritus Fellow since 2014

I am an international lawyer, dealing primarily with the legal aspects of refugee flows, migration, and forced displacement. I am also involved with related issues, including statelessness, deprivation of citizenship, ‘counter-terrorism’, and the challenges to human rights raised by the widespread emphasis globally on ‘securitisation’, and more recently as a consequence of COVID-19. In addition, I remain particularly interested in the activities of international and regional organisations, both in contributing to the resolution of humanitarian problems and as potentially ‘representative’ forums. I practised as a Barrister at Blackstone Chambers, London, from 2002-2018, and from July 2017–December 2021, I was Professor in the Faculty of Law & Justice and the Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law at the University of New South Wales; I have been an Honorary Professor since January 2022. In February 2020, I was awarded the Stefan A. Riesenfeld Memorial Award at Berkeley Law for my contributions to international law and international refugee law, and in September 2021, Oxford University Press published the fourth edition of The Refugee in International Law (with Professor Jane McAdam and Emma Dunlop).
