Professor Geraldine Van Bueren QC 'Making Waves: Should boat-race protestor Trenton Oldfield be deported?' Times Higher Education
12 July 2013
Professor Geraldine Van Bueren QC presents the legal arguments around the deportation of Trenton Oldfield, the Australian protestor who interrupted the Oxford-Cambridge boat race and has now had his application for a spousal visa to remain in the UK rejected. Professor Van Bueren writes that it is 'a fundamental tenet of democratic society with a culture of human rights that it does not seek to use a sledgehammer to crack a nut' and discusses the rights of Oldfield’s wife and child, as British citizens.
- Geraldine Van Bueren is Professor of International Human Rights Law at Queen Mary, University of London.
