PROTECT The Right to International Protection. A Pendulum between Globalization and Nativization? is an EU funded research project which studies the impact of the UN’s Global Compacts on Refugees and Migration on refugees’ right to international protection.

We consist of 11 partner universities in Europe, Canada, and South Africa.
