Description

The Global Compact on Refugees (GCR) has brought new hopes and new controversies around international refugee protection. Although it does not replace the 1951 Geneva Convention on the Status of Refugees (Convention) but adds to it a framework to facilitate voluntary responsibilitysharing among states, there are divergent views about its potential impact: For some, it has a realistic potential to improve refugee protection (Türk and Garlick 2016), and it potentially increases states’ protection commitments (Betts 2018). For others, it is too thin to address the current human rights and refugee protection challenges (Hathaway 2018), and it dilutes the right to seek asylum stipulated in the Convention (Chimni 2018). In PROTECT, a Horizon 2020-project with 12 partner universities located in Europe, Canada, and South Africa (https://protect-project.eu), we posit that GCR can be a new window of opportunity to improve the international refugee protection system if proper means are deployed in its implementation.
