The future of resettlement: vulnerability revisited

This project explores changes in resettlement policies, specifically related to the concept of “vulnerability”, and how these policy changes shape the processes of how refugees are selected for resettlement.

With a comparative perspective across resettling third countries, we explore how criteria and categories for selection of refugees are developed in resettlement policies, with special attention to categories of vulnerability.

We also study how Norway’s selection missions actually implement the categories and criteria, by observing Norwegian resettlement missions in Uganda, Lebanon, and Rwanda.

The project will run from 2021 through 2024, and involves partners from France, Greece, Lebanon, Norway, Sweden, UK, and Uganda.
