Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in refugee history (duration 2 years) is available at the Norwegian Centre of Human Rights, Faculty of Law, University of Oslo.
The researcher will take part in the Research Council of Norway-funded project Refugees and the Arab Middle East: Protection in States Not Party to the Refugee Convention (REF-ARAB), led by Professor Maja Janmyr.
The REF-ARAB project is concerned with refugee protection in states not party to the key international legal instruments providing for the protection of the world's refugees. It takes both a broader perspective that historically and politically situates these non-party states within the international refugee regime, and a more focused perspective that grounds refugee protection in lived experiences and local initiatives.
More specifically, the REF-ARAB project will 1) study the historical and political circumstances related to why so many states in the Arab Middle East (AME) have remained non-parties to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and the 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees (the Refugee Convention);
2) explore how the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) executes its mandate to provide international protection to refugees in these same states; and 3) examine the avenues available for refugees in these countries by means of non-governmental legal aid organizations in securing legal protection on the basis of human rights instruments and other domestic legislation.
The research fellow in refugee history will study the historical linkages between the UN refugee regime and the Arab Middle East. Generally speaking, the territory of 'the Arab Middle East' includes Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. It is expected that the candidate conduct research in one or more AME states, in addition to historical archives at UN level. The research should result in three (or more) scientific, peer-reviewed journal articles in leading academic journals. In addition, the research fellow shall disseminate research findings as per the project plan.
Applicants must frame their project proposals within the overall framework of the REF-ARAB project, and be familiar with the project's contents and objectives.
