Rights, Essential Needs and the Politics of Protracted Refuge: A critique of refugee self-reliance in light of the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework

Thursday, October 26, 2017, 12:00PM - 1:30PM
Speakers: Dr. anna purkey
Room 1-42
Dr. Anna Purkey reviews the current understandings of refugee self-reliance and offers a critical analysis of the recent discourse that focuses very narrowly on an economic understanding of refugee well-being. A rights-based understanding of self-reliance that draws on the capabilities approach and seeks to address the marginalization and exclusion that refugees face in states of asylum is proposed.
