Undesirable migrants: should they stay or should they go?


About the research

If a criminal comes to your country and wants to stay: do you think your government should allow him to? Júlia Zomignani Barboza sheds some -legal- light on this matter. She proposes a balancing test that takes the rights of migrants as well as the national security into account when dealing with these situations.

Arguing about everything since she was child, Júlia Zomignani Barboza studied law. With a passion to help those in need, she focused her career on human rights. After spending 3 years in Geneva, Júlia worked with asylum seekers and refugees in Bangkok and Sydney, which inspired her current PhD on undesirable but unreturnable migrants. Júlia’s research tries to find a solution to a special category of migrants that is frequently left in legal limbo.
