Two Roads for Refugee Rights: When Do Host Countries and International Institutions Protect Refugees?
Why do host countries provide post-entry rights to refugees who tend to be considered to be political minorities? And under what conditions do they follow suggestions and guidelines of the international organizations? By focusing on political regime of host countries, this research aims to theoretically and empirically unravel its impact on provision of refugee rights. Specifically, it intends to construct cross-national dataset on refugee rights, coupled with case studies.


By pursuing this research, we hope to provide insightful information and suggestions for refugee issues in Japan.
