Written by Sergio Carrera (CEPS), M Sanjeeb Hossain (University of Oslo) and Lewis Turner (Newcastle University, UK) / October 2023

This Report presents the final synthesis results and comparative assessment of the country research findings of ASILE Project Work package (WP) 4 titled “Refugee recognition, self-reliance and rights”. WP4 aims at facilitating a better understanding of how refugee and other kinds of ‘protection’ are allocated, and the rights enjoyed by refugees and other beneficiaries of international protection, with particular focus on the right to work. WP4 pays also special attention to the ways in which the notion of “vulnerability” is articulated, assessed and implemented in six country cases and selected asylum governance instruments.
