Progetto: Research project

Dettagli progetto

Description

According to the latest figures for 2017 published by the UNHCR (http://www.un.org/en/development/desa/population/migration/publications) 13 per cent of forcibly displaced people who are now ‘of concern’ to the UNHCR are in the Asia and Pacific region (9.4 million). Even though International migration is of great concern and affects countries social and economic status, ratification of various legal instruments related to international migration, however, remain uneven. Additionally, due to the fact that in India, Myanmar and Malaysia, governments are not meeting their responsibility with regard to refugees on their territory and do not have national refugee law, UNHCR is registering refugees, conducting refugee status determination, and resettling them elsewhere. (Asia and the Pacific, UNHCR, http://www.unhcr.org/pages/4a02d8ec6.html). For these reasons, the project will aim to push for the adoption in Partner Countries of a meaningful, comprehensive, domestic legal framework that is consistent with international standards and ensures refugees are actually protected. It will do so by promoting an integrated legislative approach to forced migration by tackling its root causes through the offering of advanced international and national legal research on the subject which will also include social aspects and ultimately ensure the safety and dignity of those forced to flee, build environments that provide lasting solutions for displaced populations, their host communities, and returnees. This general aim will be achieved by equipping legal practioners with an understanding of the international standards that are relevant for good governance of migration, communicate legal, policy and theoretical perspectives of refugee legal issues effectively, both verbally and in writing; by improving their skills in high -quality delivery reporting in the subject area and by creating a ‘Knowledge centre on Forced Migration and Democracy’ that will strengthen the overall response to support the work of government officials and law practitioners on refugee related issues.
