Re-examining refugee protection through a lens of mobility and migration
This project has two principal aims, the first being to re-examine refugee protection through a lens of mobility and migration, and secondly, to bring scholarship on refugee law into conversation with the practices of the refugee regime, in particular to subject the latter to legal scrutiny. It has two main strands. The first, Recognising Refugees examines practices of refugee recognition globally, with a particular focus on the role of UNHCR. The Organisations of Protection strand examines the changing international organisations at work in the global refugee and migration regimes, with a particular focus on IOM.
