  • Research and Policy Making: Fields Apart in a Complex World?
    • Authors: Mariano Aguirre
      First page: 387
      Abstract: Source: Volume 7, Issue 3, pp 387 - 405The debate about how to influence policy and how useful policy is for decision-makers is related to the evolution, dynamics and interaction among ways to do politics; the role of the state; the role of different social and political actors; the relationship between public and private approaches to academia; and the influence of communications technologies. These are the actors and factors that operate in the complex reality of international politics. The speed of modern politics and the role of media pundits work against the long-term academic perspective. Fastness and complexity, superficiality and deepness compete in the policy-making field creating gaps, revolving doors and competition.

  • What is Policy Research For? Reflections on the United States’
           Failures in Syria
    • Authors: Shadi Hamid
      First page: 373
      Abstract: Source: Volume 7, Issue 3, pp 373 - 386Debates over the Syrian civil war and the role of U.S. policy have brought into sharp relief the dilemmas of policy research. When the basic thrust of policy seems immovable irrespective of events on the ground, how should researchers respond? Should influencing policy be the animating objective of policy research? Who exactly should our work be directed to? This article considers the evolution of the Obama administration’s U.S.-Syria policy and what it has meant for those of us in the policy community who (apparently futilely) wrote in favor of a fundamentally different course of action. Two approaches to policy research are discussed in detail as they relate to Syria. The first is to accept the narrow constraints of policymaking and tailor one’s recommendations accordingly. The second is to not accept “reality” as a given and to write about what should happen, however unlikely it might be. In the second approach, the priority is on shaping public debate as well as influencing internal dynamics within government, rather than on tangible policy outcomes.

  • Policy Research: Some Reflections on Theory and Practice
    • Authors: Rosemary Hollis
      First page: 361
      Abstract: Source: Volume 7, Issue 3, pp 361 - 372This essay reflects on the enterprise of policy research, considering its audience and purpose in a climate of political inaction. The author draws upon an extensive professional history of working in the policy sector in the UK and reflecting about its remit from an academic vantage point. Drawing upon the case studies featured in this issue on Syria’s refugee crisis, the author poses fundamental questions about the limits of policy research by reflecting the methods employed in policy research and the institutional and political climate in which such research is undertaken.

  • Jordan and Syrian Refugees: Avoiding the Worst Case Scenario
    • Authors: Doris Carrion
      First page: 319
      Abstract: Source: Volume 7, Issue 3, pp 319 - 335Civil war in Syria has provoked a major refugee crisis in neighbouring Jordan, raising the latter’s population by 8 per cent. For Jordanians, the highly visible presence of many thousands of refugees living in their midst – mostly in urban areas, rather than camps – raises fears over competition for resources and opportunities. Host communities have partly benefited from the presence of refugees, but many Jordanians feel they are worse off because of the Syrians. The refugee crisis has hit the most vulnerable people in their country hardest. Local inhabitants feel increasingly disenfranchised and neglected by both their government and international donors due to a real and perceived impact on rents, prices, public services and public order. If current trends continue, resentment and alienation in the northern governorates are likely to increase in the coming years. Local discontent may subside if Syrians are given more opportunities to earn a living legally, which would mean that Jordan would benefit more from their presence. In order to minimize a negative political effect, a more open livelihood policy should be accompanied by a significant increase in international development support for host communities. It does not look like refugees will be able to return to Syria any time soon, no matter how hard life in Jordan becomes. Jordan and the international community should take the difficult but necessary steps to prevent the crisis from making life even worse for the country’s most vulnerable residents.

  • Protecting Syrian Refugees: Laws, Policies, and Global Responsibility
    • Authors: Susan M. Akram; Sarah Bidinger, Aaron Lang, Danielle Hites, Yoana Kuzmova Elena Noureddine
      First page: 287
      Abstract: Source: Volume 7, Issue 3, pp 287 - 318This article provides an excerpt of a report that maps out how the Syrian refugee crisis is being played out in four of the main states hosting the refugees, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Turkey. This excerpt focuses on the laws and policies in the host states and how they are creating particularly devastating consequences for Palestinian refugees. The excerpt sets out the Report’s conclusions and recommendations, primarily the call for a global Comprehensive Plan of Action (CPA), with various components within and outside the Middle East region that build on existing legal obligations to better allocate responsibility for the refugee population and lift the overwhelming and unsustainable burden from the current frontline host states. The conclusions and recommendations combine legal and policy measures that would allow close the Palestinian refugee ‘protection gap,’ stem the phenomenon of trafficking and disasters-at-sea, prevent further fallout of the Syrian humanitarian crisis, and create incentive amongst the larger community of states to intervene to end the regional conflict.

  • Transitional Justice in Syria: The Role and Contribution of Syrian
           Refugees and Displaced Persons (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Rania Al Jazairi
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 24To date, an estimated 9 million Syrians have fled their homes since the beginning of the conflict in 2011. While over 3 million have fled to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq, 6.5 million are internally displaced within Syria. Whereas most research has focused on examining Syrian refugees’ status and living conditions in host countries; few studies aimed to document their views and perceptions about transitional justice processes, including reparation issues and how they perceived a durable and sustainable peace in Syria. This paper focuses on Syrian refugees and displaced persons’ role and contribution to transitional justice processes. It explores their views and perceptions about a wide range of political, civil, social, economic and cultural issues, including accountability, reparation, the nature of the future governance system, Syria’s cultural identity, the rights of minorities and women, reconstruction and development priorities and Demilitarization, Demobilization and Reintegration (ddr) issues.
