Comprehensive literature review of Global Public Policy: creating a framework for understanding Global Refugee Policy
Emily Bauman, Sarah Deardorff Miller
Global Refugee Policy (GRP) is a term that has been widely used, but seldom defined. Scholars and practitioners alike examine and critique policies and policy processes, yet there remains vagueness around what is meant by such processes and how they can be conceptualised in light of the experiences of forced migrants. This literature review takes an international relations perspective, considering how Global Public Policy (GPP) as a body of literature can be useful in understanding GRP. It engages works by key authors, outlining the main assumptions, definitions and theory behind GPP with the intention of informing a framework for understanding GRP.
