The impact of the GRC and the GMC on the recognition of the right to international protection in the public sphere

Beyond the effects the Global Compacts may have on Civil Society Organizations and public attitudes towards international protection, PROTECT examines the effect they produce in the public sphere at large. Namely, by using big data methodologies, the project studies how the Compacts are received around the world and the way they affect public discourses on international protection. The project thus maps and analyses the networks of governance actors, and the discourses they hold in traditional media (news outlets) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and so forth). It then assesses the impact of said discourses on the notion of human and refugee rights, and their level of conformity with current international law.
