New book:

From Education to Employment? Young People’s Trajectories in Protracted Crisis (Lebanese American Univ. & Oxford Brookes Univ., June 2022) [full-text]
- From the introduction: "Lebanon and Jordan are among the countries in the world hosting the most refugees relative to their population. The two countries represent the many countries across the globe where refugees cannot automatically work, where work can only be accessed through a work permit, and where education of different groups is segregated. A main aim of the project has therefore been concerned with understanding the role of young people’s legal status in shaping their trajectories from education to employment. By including the experience of nationals, meaning individuals with citizenship in Jordan and Lebanon, in addition to Palestinian and Syrian refugees, we were able to understand better some of the specificities of displacement and the experience of living in a context where displacement represents part of the public narrative."

News: Launch of RLI Declaration on Externalisation and Asylum

The first order of business today at the opening of the Refugee Law Initiative's 6th annual conference was the adoption of the RLI Declaration on Externalisation and Asylum. With the aim of offering "guidance to law- and policy-makers, practitioners, scholars and others," the Declaration outlines "international law standards that govern the legality of externalisation measures impacting on access to territorial asylum, with a particular focus on externalised border controls and externalised asylum systems." 

The Declaration is accompanied by an analytical paper that sets out "a definition of the term 'externalisation', relevant international law standards and a global account of the legal and policy issues raised by these two examples of externalisation."

This document is the first Declaration on International Protection that the Refugee Law Initiative has helped to realize. RLI intends to promulgate additional declarations and analytical papers every two years.
