York University is holding a panel discussion on this case decided by the Supreme Court of Canada. CCIJ, in partnership with the University of Toronto International Human Rights Program, intervened in the case. CCIJ and the IHRP argued that the criteria repeatedly applied by the courts and the government of Canada concerning exclusion from refugee protection was not in line with international law. On July 19, 2013, the Supreme Court released its judgment. The Court ruled, in line with the position taken by CCIJ, the IHRP and other interveners, that the refugee determination must be made in accordance with international criminal law.
