About ASILE Project

The ASILE project studies the interactions between emerging international protection systems and the United Nations Global Compact for Refugees (UN GCR), with particular focus on the European Union’s role and contribution. It examines the characteristics of international, country-specific and EU asylum governance instruments and arrangements and their gender and age specific impacts on individuals and sharing of responsibility from the perspective of their effectiveness, fairness and consistency with international and regional human rights and refugee law standards…

Objectives

Advance the state-of-the-art by bringing about a new conceptual and ground-breaking understanding to refugee studies on the notions of containment and mobility, their intersections and their inclusionary and exclusionary effects from the perspective of international refugee protection.

Contribute with a ground-breaking understanding of current and future asylum governance regimes, and the characteristics and impacts of policy and legal instruments and arrangements, including those on responsibility sharing.

To facilitate new ways to bring the voices of refugees in the conceptualisation of emerging international protection systems by examining the impacts of existing mobility policy and legal instruments and arrangements on individuals.

Draw lessons learned for future global and EU policy responses. The project will implement a set of policy engagement activities securing effective linkages between the project research results and relevant policy processes, discourses and outputs in the scope of the UN GCR.

To provide a novel inter-disciplinary and gender-balanced international academic network of outstanding scholars – including project partners and members of international advisory academic board.

Sustainability, outreach and impact. The project will set the foundations for the development of a Global Academic Association on Refugee Studies and the UN GCR. Creation of an ASILE Global Portal, Training Schools and ASILE Fellowship programme for refugee scholars.
