Brief description:"Resettlement involves the selection and transfer of refugees from a State in which they have sought protection to a third State which has agreed to admit them – as refugees – with permanent residence status."
Methodology:Legal issues occurring in the different stages of the resettlement process are identified by means of comparative analysis with the US. The comparison carries out to what extent US resettlement may provide guidance as a role model for the EU. International , European, US legal frameworks for refugee protection and soft law are considered. The 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees (Refugee Convention) serves as starting and reference point; the legal frameworks are used in a complementary way. The US legal framework and resettlement practice is analyzed in terms of implementation and effectiveness of the Refugee Convention. In the following, potential points of friction are identified, also with European Asylum and Human Rights Law. Moreover, questions of responsibility are examined to point out consequences of non-compliance with the outlined legal frameworks and protection standards. The Draft Articles on Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts , Draft Articles on Responsibility of International Organizations as well as case law are therefore consulted.
