Rationale The Global Compact on Refugees as well as ongoing discussions in the EU regarding the fair distribution of refugees provide an opportunity to rethink responsibilitysharing. Bringing together leading scholars and practitioners working in the area, this workshop aims to contribute to both discussions and inform policy-making through scholarly work. Speakers are invited to give a ten minute presentation, based on a short memo summarising their key argument. This memo will be distributed one week prior to the workshop. After the presentations there will be plenty of time to discuss individual ideas and interventions as well potential conclusions and policy recommendations. The conclusions of this event will be published in as part of the Policy Brief Series of the Refugee Studies Centre.
