To all members of the International Association of Refugee Law Judges (IARLJ).
I hereby give notice of the General Meeting of the IARLJ on Thursday, 30 November 2017 from 4.30 pm till 5.00 pm at the Hotel Titania, Panepistimiou 52, 10678 Athens, Greece.
According to article 8.3 of the Constitution of the IARLJ, the following business is on the agenda:
- the election of the Officers and members of Council of the Association;
- the receipt of the annual accounts;
- subject to article 12, the Amendment of the Constitution; and
- the consideration of such other business as may properly come before it.
With regard to subject 3 I bring to your attention that on 22 August 2017, a proposal to amend the Constitution was recommended by Council and filed with the Secretary.
The proposal reads as follows:
“The IARLJ shall have in its field of interest, expertise and discussions within its network, both the law on international protection and migration law. To this end the name of the IARLJ should be altered to include migration in its denomination.”
Further details on the issues for the agenda will follow.
14 October 2017
Secretary/Treasurer of the International Association of Refugee Law Judges
