  • The End of Refugee Protection'
    • Authors: McConnachie K; Carver R, Jones M.
      Pages: 175 - 176
      Abstract: We are in an era of increasing intolerance of forced migration, with the movement of people framed as an unprecedented crisis and their needs as an impossible burden. States are adopting ever more inventive ways to avoid accepting refugees—and this practice includes historical defenders of human rights and international law, such as the United States and the European Union. New situations of conflict and violence in Syria, Yemen and South Sudan have forced millions of people to leave their homes, while long-standing situations of displacement (including those of Palestinians, Somalis and Afghans) have proven impossible to resolve. These dynamics, combined with rising populism fuelled in large part by anti-immigration rhetoric, present a direct challenge to the post-1945 refugee protection regime.

  • Mobilizing Home for Long-Term Displacement: A Critical Reflection on the
           Durable Solutions
    • Authors: Brun C; Fábos A.
      Pages: 177 - 183
      Abstract: With long term displacement becoming the ‘new normal’, the three ‘durable solutions’ of local integration, resettlement, and return are increasingly unsuitable for offering social, economic and cultural means for refugees to rebuild their lives and livelihoods. This article retreads some common observations and critiques of the durable solutions, while attempting to find a new vocabulary to help address the conundrum of a refugee protection model that tries to integrate rights and needs. There have been other attempts to revise the durable solutions, introduce new solutions—often acknowledging refugee mobility, or revert to informality as an alternative. However, such attempts have not sufficiently taken into account the extent of what refugees do. The consequences are an ‘integration lite’ where people may be able to survive, but their refugee status is not ended, nor is their refugee predicament closer to being addressed. The article suggests a new framework—constellations of home—that can be a significant bridging tool for the gap between rights and needs and that incorporates the static and ahistorical notion of the durable solutions as well as the mobile strategies of refugees in long-term displacement.

  • Asylum, Refugee Protection and the European Response to Syrian Migration
    • Authors: Stevens D.
      Pages: 184 - 189
      Abstract: The recent increase in migration to the European Union raised many concerns for the EU, for Member States and for the individual. Much of the discussion hitherto has been focused on the EU from a state perspective and has been concerned with the policies proposed and adopted to address and limit inward movement of peoples. One issue that has not received requisite attention is that of the meaning of ‘protection’ from the individual claimant’s point of view. This article reflects on the Syrian migration of 2015 and 2016 and the implications of a triumph of realpolitik—that is, state sovereignty—over a generous, meaningful and humane approach to asylum.

  • Refugee Protection and the Art of the Deal
    • Authors: McConnachie K.
      Pages: 190 - 196
      Abstract: Policy responses to refugee protection have increasingly been characterized by deals, swaps and bargains. This article examines a variety of approaches to ‘refugee protection and the art of the deal’ and argues that these illustrate a fundamental shift in asylum policy, from a principle-based approach to a political bargain. Importantly, this shift has occurred with—and arguably was made possible by—the complicity of leading protection actors.

  • (Avoiding) The End of Refugee Status Determination
    • Authors: Kagan M.

      Abstract: Increasing backlogs are preventing individual refugee status determination systems from functioning, even in some of the most well developed asylum systems. This means that asylum seekers must spend the first, most vulnerable, years in their countries of refuge without having been individually adjudicated to meet the international refugee definition. Decline in individual refugee status determination hastens an overall decline in refugee rights. It is essential to find means of maintaining viable individual refugee status determination systems, even as large refugee movements seem to make this impractical.

  • The End of Refugee Law'
    • Authors: Cantor D.
      Pages: 203 - 211
      Abstract: Debates about the end of the global refugee protection regime presuppose a failure of refugee law. Certainly, the plethora of news accounts documenting the inhumane treatment of asylum seekers and refugees across the world is sometimes taken to suggest that refugee law has somehow failed in its objectives. Can it be that refugee law has outlived its utility' Has it failed to articulate a shared set of values in international relations' Are we looking at the ‘end days’ of refugee law' The narrow discipline of refugee law might seem poorly positioned to contribute to ‘big picture’ debates about the future of refugee law and protection. However, this is not to say that a view from within the refugee law discipline might not usefully complement broader social and political analyses. Not least since, alongside the wider contextual challenges, the coherence and viability of refugee law is itself also being called into question by trends within refugee law that work to undermine its potential to articulate a shared global vision of refugee protection. Exploring the potential of refugee law to contribute to the development of a new global vision of refugee protection is the aim of this article. It is also a research agenda that refugee law scholars are particularly well-placed to follow. In order to do so, this article cautions that we must first overcome three constraints in our conceptual and methodological approach. By surmounting them, though, we may help to articulate a new and coherent ‘global’ vision of refugee law relevant not only to reshaping the practice of the law but also to broader debates on the future of refugee protection.

  • Expanding the Frontiers of Refugee Law: Developing a Broader Law of Asylum
           in the Middle East and Europe
    • Authors: Jones M.
      Pages: 212 - 215
      Abstract: The international refugee regime views as an exception the large number of states (both hosting and producing much of the global refugee population) that are not party to its cornerstone treaty. This approach diminishes the role of law, the legal profession and legal institutions in refugee protection in a broad swathe of states encompassing much of the Middle East and Asia. An alternative approach to treating this part of the world as a zone of exception to refugee law is to base legal interventions on a variable and pluralistic ‘law of asylum’. This approach has been successful and provides new avenues for legal engagement, even in jurisdictions that are traditionally seen as weak in the rule of law or without the requisite commitment to the norms of refugee law.

  • Refugees and National Human Rights Institutions: A Growing Engagement
    • Authors: Carver R.
      Pages: 216 - 222
      Abstract: In recent years national human rights institutions (NHRIs) have begun to bridge the long-standing gap between practice in the refugee and human rights fields. Often using their mandate as national preventive mechanisms under the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture, NHRIs visit refugees in detention as well as in other types of camp. This has been particularly marked among Balkan ombudsman institutions in their response to the recent mass influx of refugees.

  • Video for Change: Creating and Measuring Ethical Impact
    • Authors: Notley T; Gregory S, Lowenthal A.
      Pages: 223 - 246
      Abstract: ‘Video for Change’ refers to the practice of using video as a means to activate progressive social change. Ongoing work in this field seeks to define and establish ethical considerations that can inform and direct Video for Change as an emerging practice. This article reports on a research project carried out with a network of Video for Change organizations. The purpose of this project was to inform the development of an impact framework that could be used to support Video for Change practitioners to design for—and evaluate—their social impact in a way that is considered ethically appropriate. The project began by investigating what makes Video for Change a unique media practice and by considering its genealogy. This was followed by an examination of the ethics and ethical practices that are most valued by Video for Change practitioners. This article reports on research key findings, and proposes an Impact Pathways framework, while also highlighting key challenges associated with designing—and assessing—the social impact of video initiatives across diverse contexts.

  • Scrutinizing the Embrace of Human Rights in Ugandan Prisons: An
           Ethnographic Analysis of the Equivocal Responses to Human Rights Watch
    • Authors: Martin T.
      Pages: 247 - 267
      Abstract: An acclaimed human rights reform process seems to change Ugandan prisons according to policy prescriptions. Yet prison officers continue to bend rules and use physical violence to actually ensure custodial control and survive professionally in situations of insecurity and exigency. An external audit by Human Rights Watch systematically reads this pragmatic appropriation of human rights as duplicitous and deviant, while the prison management takes the external criticism as an opportunity to reconsolidate itself as a human rights observer in the charged debate about reform. It is thereby argued that human rights take effect in Ugandan prisons as a form of governance that invigorates bureaucratic power and enables institutional reproduction.

  • A Trauma-Informed Approach to the Protection and Support of Witnesses in
           International Tribunals: Ten Guiding Principles
    • Authors: Stepakoff S; Henry N, Binta Barrie N, et al.
      Pages: 268 - 286
      Abstract: Drawing on the scholarly and clinical work of trauma experts, this article presents a conceptual framework to inform the provision of services for witnesses in international tribunals. In particular, the authors present the following ten principles to guide protection and support practices with witnesses: establish a caring relationship; maintain a safe environment; stabilize physiological and mental functioning; maximize predictability; maximize choices; affirm dignity and value; affirm the power of speech; promote human connection; instil hope; and foster reconnection with ordinary life. The authors discuss these principles according to three clusters, based on their relative salience at different phases of a witness’s participation: pre-testimony, during testimony, and post-testimony. For each principle, the authors provide a rationale as well as some examples from the witness unit at the Special Court for Sierra Leone. They also discuss some of the challenges encountered in the effort to adhere to each principle. With modifications to ensure relevance to specific contexts and cultures, the adoption of these principles will enhance the likelihood of positive experiences, and reduce the risk of harm, among individuals who testify in international war crimes trials.

  • The Role of Non-Governmental Organizations in the Business and Human
           Rights Treaty Negotiations
    • Authors: Bernaz N; Pietropaoli I.
      Pages: 287 - 311
      Abstract: In June 2014, the UN Human Rights Council established an intergovernmental working group to elaborate a treaty on business and human rights. In July 2015, the working group held its first session launching the negotiations process—the culmination of a global movement of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that over the last four decades have called for greater corporate accountability for human rights violations. The advocacy activities of the Treaty Alliance, an alliance of NGOs that supports the development of the treaty, were pivotal to the tabling of the resolution establishing the working group. These organizations now have the opportunity to engage with the negotiations process, both formally and informally, through consultations, advocacy, and lobbying. This article considers the impact NGOs may have in the drafting negotiations of the proposed treaty. It identifies several lobbying and advocacy strategies that were successful in previous international law-making processes and discusses the extent to which they could be applied to the current negotiations. It presents the benefits of an NGO coalition, of formal and informal lobbying strategies, and of the development of a common NGOs and friendly states framework. It analyses the reasons for Western states’ opposition and suggests lobbying strategies that may overcome it. Recognizing the unique subject matter of this treaty, it also focuses on lobbying corporate actors, and explores the complementarity between the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the treaty and the need for NGOs to support both. The article concludes on the necessity to compromise on essential points if a treaty is ever to emerge.

  • Collective Critical Reflections on Using a Human Rights-Based Approach in
    • Authors: Archer D.
      Pages: 312 - 325
      Abstract: ActionAid first made a commitment to move to a human rights-based approach (HRBA) to development in 1998, through its strategy ‘Fighting Poverty Together’—and this has been reinforced in subsequent strategies, ‘Rights to End Poverty’ in 2005 and ‘People’s Action to End Poverty’ 2011. (A policy and practice note that tracked the participatory process used in developing the 2011 strategy was published in the November 2011 issue of the Journal of Human Rights Practice.) In 2015 a series of regional meetings were held convening programme staff and partners to share practical experiences of applying HRBA in different contexts. Participants presented and collectively scrutinized country case studies drawing out critical learning about ActionAid’s theory of change and HRBA. These insights were then synthesized and collated across regions. This policy and practice note presents the key reflections for the next stage of evolution in ActionAid’s human rights-based approach, showing how they have helped to inform the new ActionAid ‘Strategy 2028: Action for Global Justice’.

      Abstract: This review essay considers Elizabeth Bruch’s new work, Human Rights and Humanitarian Intervention: Law and Practice in the Field. It notes the significance of Bruch’s practice-based focus, methodological approach, and ability to blend descriptive and critical accounts of the emergent use of human rights as a means of global governance in post-intervention spaces.
