Refugees, Regionalism and Responsibility

  • Elgar Studies in Human Rights series

Penelope Mathew and Tristan Harley

Regional cooperation is sometimes seen as the answer to refugee movements. This book examines whether regional arrangements have resulted in protection and durable solutions for refugees and how responsibility for refugees has been shared at the regional level. Posing critical questions about responsibility-sharing and regionalism, the book is a timely contribution on an issue garnering increasing attention as a result of maritime arrivals in the Mediterranean and Southeast Asia.

Chapter 9: Lessons learned

Penelope Mathew and Tristan Harley

Abstract

This concluding chapter begins by examining whether the regional arrangements discussed in the book have provided good protection outcomes for refugees; the ways the arrangements have shared responsibility among states; and the different forms of regionalism that the arrangements have developed. The chapter then looks at some of the tools that have been utilized in the arrangements that could be implemented by governments in the future to bring about better protection for refugees and more equitable sharing among states.
