Professor Guy S. Goodwin-Gill

MA, DPhil
Emeritus Fellow since 2014

I am an international lawyer, and interested primarily with the legal aspects of refugee flows, migration, and forced displacement. Together with Professor Jane McAdam (University of New South Wales) and assisted by Emma Dunlop, I have recently submitted a fourth, expanded edition of The Refugee in International Law, which will be published by Oxford University Press in 2021. 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 since July 2017, I have been Professor in the Faculty of Law and the Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law at the University of New South Wales. In February 2020, I was awarded the Stefan A. Riesenfeld Memorial Award for contributions to international law and international refugee law.
