Refugees in International Relations
Bridging the divide between refugee studies and international relations
Refugees lie at the heart of world politics and yet scholars of international relations have generally bypassed the study of refugees, and forced migration studies has generally bypassed insights from international relations.
This project attempted to bridge the divide, exploring a range of ways in which refugee protection and other aspects of forced migration interact with world politics.
The project was divided into a number of sub-themes:
- International cooperation and burden-sharing;
- UNHCR and institutional change;
- Implementation in world politics.
