Recognising Refugees: Practices and Modes of Recognition
Public Seminar Series
Thursday, 21 September 2023, 11am to 12pm
Refugee status determination is the process to determine who gets recognised as a refugee and is a central part of the international protection regime. However, practices and modes of recognition vary widely and are often politicised and contested. Given these dynamics, how to ensure the quality of recognition processes and outcomes? Which alternatives to formal refugee status do exist? And, how do group-based forms of recognition work and compare to individualised refugee status determination? The speakers at this online event shed light on these and related questions.

Professor Liliana Jubilut (Universidade Católica de Santos): Brazil’s Dual Format of RSD: From the Tradition of Individual Procedures to the Use of Technology on Group Recognition
