Vulnerabilities under the Global Protection Regime: how does the law assess, address, shape, and produce the vulnerabilities of protection seekers?

Project description

Studying the consequences and legal implications of vulnerability in protection seekers

The concept of vulnerability is increasingly used to guide global protection policies. However, it has yet to be clearly conceptualised and its practical consequences and legal implications are still not thoroughly understood. Adopting a critical and comparative approach, the EU-funded VULNER project aims to address these deficiencies by focusing on forced migration. To do this, it will study how some countries' protection regimes deal with the vulnerabilities of people seeking protection. The analysis will involve two complementary perspectives: first, how protection seekers' vulnerabilities are assessed and addressed by decision-makers; second, how protection seekers experience the various forms of vulnerability. The project's results will help to shed light on the concept of vulnerability and how it should inform global protection policies.
