Funding for the future of refugee protection

Dr Dallal Stevens has been awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship for £49,622.

The year-long project, starting October 2017, calls for new thinking on the crucial issue of access to refugee protection in the Middle East.

It argues that existing law and policies are failing refugees and that an innovative, multi-dimensional analysis is now needed.

Such an approach requires exploration and assessment of the many factors that influence protection in the region.

Law, language, history, policy, practice and politics will all be examined along with their interrelationship and the implications for “protection” as currently interpreted and delivered.

The work will involve interviews with key stakeholders on the protection situation on the ground - in particular, the UNHCR, (I)NGOs and legal advisors in Amman, Jordan; Beirut, Lebanon; and Ankara, Turkey.

The study will provide a roadmap for the future at this critical juncture in the international and local refugee regime.
