  • 12:10PM to 1:30PM
  • SLB Room 120

Since the FCC rescinded federal network neutrality regulation, there has been a flood of state laws seeking to reimpose network neutrality at the state level. Those state laws have themselves been challenged, both as preempted by the same FCC ruling that rescinded federal neutrality rules and as violating “dormant Commerce Clause” limitations on  state power.

Dr. Violeta Moreno-Lax, "The (Intersectional) 'Right to Flee' Under International Law"

  • 12:10PM to 1:45PM
  • SLB Room 129

States the world-over tend to negate the existence of a right to asylum, taking support on the non-binding character of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and the elusive wording of its Article 14. They also usually rely on a (mis-)understanding of non-refoulement as having no extraterritorial bearing and protecting only against undue expulsion from within State jurisdiction -  thus usually after the person concerned would have (somehow) reached the destination country's territory.
