Regional protection and cooperation

Description

With around 7.7 million refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced persons and stateless people in the Asia-Pacific region, the phenomenon of forced displacement is too great for any one State to address alone. However, increasingly stringent border control and interception measures have reduced the protection space in the region. International cooperation is essential to help States respond to the needs of forced migrants entering and moving through their territories.

With a special focus on Indonesia and Cambodia, this project looks at best practices for protection and cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region, and the law that governs these matters at the international and regional levels.
