BEYOND reconsiders the impact of international refugee law by developing a global and empirically driven theoretical framework for understanding the behavior and position of states that have chosen not to sign the 1951 Refugee Convention. While most states of the world are parties to this Convention, important refugee-hosting states remain non-signatories. These states are generally seen as ‘exceptions’ to international refugee law, and it is the aim of BEYOND to shed crucial, empirically grounded light on, and to question, this prevailing assumption. The project is concerned with the following main questions: 1. What is the influence of the Refugee Convention in non-signatory states?; 2. How do these non-signatory states engage with and help create the international refugee law regime, i.e. the instruments and institutions of refugee protection with the Refugee Convention and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) as cornerstones?
BEYOND takes both a broader perspective that historically and politically seeks to situate these non-signatory states within the international refugee law regime, and a more focused perspective that grounds refugee protection in lived experiences and local initiatives. The project has strong empirical components and focuses on four case study countries: Lebanon, Turkey, Bangladesh and Pakistan. The candidate will play a lead role in the in-depth study of Bangladesh, and will undertake both desk-based and field-based research, in particular legal doctrinal research, empirical legal research (qualitative) in Bangladesh and at UN institutions in Geneva, and archival research (as appropriate).
The candidate is expected to – within the scope of BEYOND – develop an independent PhD project. Examples of what such a project may focus on include but is not limited to: the historical and political circumstances related to why Bangladesh remains a non-signatory to the Refugee Convention; UNHCR’s function and provision of international protection in Bangladesh; local courts’ and legal aid providers’ engagement with international refugee law. In order to analytically engage in BEYOND’s overall questions, the candidate is expected to also engage with the interdisciplinary scholarship focusing broadly on the spread of human rights norms internationally, and, more precisely, on the scholarship on transnational legal processes. Historical and critical perspectives are particularly welcome.
The candidate is expected to join the existing research milieu or network and contribute to its development. In addition to their PhD project, they will take part in group activities with the core project team, such as the seminars and workshops. The core project team consists of the Principal Investigator (PI), Prof. Maja Janmyr, Post-doctoral Research Fellow 1, Post-doctoral Research Fellow 2, and PhD Research Fellow (this vacancy). The candidate will also get the chance to build an international network and to engage with key scholars in this field, who are part of the project’s Advisory Board.
