Launched in December 2012 in connection with the 30th anniversary of the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) at the University of Oxford, a global refugee policy network is under development. Through the encouragement and support of the RRN’s Policy Network, “Understanding Global Refugee Policy” was selected as the theme of the RSC conference. Funds from the RRN supported the preparation of the conference background paper and a literature review on global public policy and global refugee policy.
