THE RIGHT TO INTERNATIONAL PROTECTION: A PENDULUM BETWEEN GLOBALIZATION AND NATIVIZATION? (PROTECT)
The PROTECT research program is concerned with the future of the right to international protection within the currently turbulent international political context. Within a multilevel comparative framework it will assess the developments on global, regional, and national levels that are brought about by the emerging global protection regime as outlined by The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (2018) and The Global Compact on Refugees (2018). PROTECT will make a comparative assessment of the different ways of aligning the legal dimension of the emerging global protection system with the relevant current international conventions, and regional and national protection regimes. Also it will observe which changes this global protection system causes on the ground in the domain of international protection, whether there are other factors that cause changes, and their consequences for the right to international protection.
