2)  Hi all,

I thought some of you might be interested in the following I had published on The Conversation, setting British support for the resettlement of refugees entering Europe in Asia and Latin America in the context of contemporary British imperialism.

Comments would be very welcome (on The Conversation site or direct to me by email).

Best wishes,
Tom

3)  IDMC Case Study - Protracted disaster displacement in Japan

Case Study Series
Protracted Disaster Displacement

This Japan case study is the first of a global series addressing a significant gap in awareness and knowledge about people caught in protracted and chronic displacement situations in the context of disasters and environmental change.

Recovery Postponed
The long-term plight of people displaced by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, tsunami and nuclear radiation disaster

2016 marked the halfway point in the ten-year timeframe for reconstruction set by the Japanese government following the devastating “Great East Japan Earthquake” disaster that struck on 11 March 2011. Recovery continues for approximately 134,000 evacuees who remain displaced almost six years later. This case highlights the importance of addressing the profound social and psychological consequences of displacement in order to reduce the impacts associated with prolonged and protracted displacement, particularly for vulnerable older people.

This is the first in a series of case studies addressing a significant gap in awareness and knowledge about people caught in protracted and chronic displacement situations in the context of disasters and environmental change. This evidence is needed to inform policy commitments to “leave no-one behind” and “reach the furthest behind first” through sustainable development, disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and the protection of human rights.

4) Trump, Brexit and the politics of immigration controls

The politics of immigration controls are at centre-stage in contemporary national and global politics. Subscribers may find the edited collection of Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies on 'The Public and the Politics of Immigration Controls' well worth a read.

The whole issue challenges (in various different ways) two key assumptions that dominate the literature: 1) that the public are in favour of immigration controls, and; 2) that governments are responding to public pressure when they introduce immigration controls (highlighted and explained in the introductory acticle).

The Special Issue includes articles on immigration controls and bi-partisan voting in Congress (by Katherine Fennelly, Kathryn Pearson and Silvana Hackett), sucessful campaigning against deporations of undocumented immigrants in the USA (Caitlin Patler & Roberto G. Gonzales), the gap between public preferences and actual policies in various European countries (Laura Morales, Jean-Benoit Pilet & Didier Ruedin).

5)  I would like to share with the Forced Migration Listserv a new research and policy project published jointly between the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Jordan, and the Boston Consortium for Arab Region Studies. The report is titled "The Syrian Work Permit Initiative in Jordan - Implications for Policy and Practice," and explores the rollout of this innovative policy response to a protracted and urban refugee situation one year after its inception. 

The report delivers a snapshot of the current economic, legal, and institutional environment surrounding the work permit initiative for Syrian refugees in Jordan, and identifies obstacles to its implementation. Jordan’s rollout of work permits for refugees is a unique experience in terms of solutions put forward by a refugee host country. It provides a concrete example of how host countries and humanitarian actors can attempt to bridge the gap between humanitarian responses to refugee crises, and long-term development support for host countries and refugee communities.

The full report can be accessed at the following link: http://media.wix.com/ugd/55e102_76d853802ce344ccae6aca9da7d45187.pdf

Please share with any colleagues who may be interested, particularly those whose work focuses on livelihoods, economics, and refugee policy.

Thank you,
Victoria Kelberer

6) When Is Immigration Detention Lawful? The Monitoring Practices of UN Human Rights Mechanisms 

Global Detention Project Working Paper No. 21
By Mariette Gange and Izabella Majcher 
February 2017 

This Global Detention Project Working Paper details how the banalisation of immigration detention is contested by international human rights mechanisms. Since the creation of the United Nations, the global human rights regime has provided a framework for the protection of all people, including those living in foreign countries. This paper assesses how national sovereignty and access to territory is mitigated by the universal nature and applicability of human rights and refugee protection standards. The authors comprehensively describe the normative framework governing immigration detention established in core international treaties and discuss how human rights bodies apply this framework when reviewing states’ policies and practices. Their assessment of the impact and implementation of fundamental norms reveals gaps in the international protection regime and highlights how states’ responses to this regime have shaped contemporary immigration detention systems..
