UCT Research Report '11
In 2011 the Unit launched its Working Paper Series, in
order to promote the activities and research of the Unit
and to promote scholarship in Refugee Law in South
Africa (
working_papers/). The Series publishes research
reports of the Refugee Rights Unit, occasional papers
of the Unit members and versions of some of the papers
presented by the Refugee Rights Unit members. A key
focus of the Working Papers is the promotion of the
rights of refugees in South Africa and the global South.
The Refugee Rights Unit remains not only committed to
directly assisting refugees and asylum seekers but also
in teaching and engaging in research which can be
used to promote and further the law in this area and as
an advocacy tool in the future.
