In the project ‘Global Refugee Protection and Local Refugee Engagement. Scope and Limits of the Agency of Refugee-led Community-based NGOs’, the aim is to analyze how refugees contribute to their protection.

Over the past three decades, refugees have been predominately framed in both academic and public discourses as passive and vulnerable victims in need of protection and assistance by external actors. Due to their vulnerability during flight and encampment they are frequently presented as subjected to – instead of agents of – their future, as a passive and homogeneous group, ignoring their different social, cultural, economic and political interests and background. Although the refugee regime is responsible for the protection and thus security of refugees, refugees often face poor living conditions and experience diverse forms of violence while in camps or other settings. However, it has been widely neglected to look into ways through which refugees go beyond the institutionalized protection to support their own security. This is where the research project starts.

The objective of the project is to analyze how refugees engage in their safety. In particular, the focus is on how refugees contribute to their protection through local community-based organizations led by refugees.  Thus, agency and resilience of refugees are fundamental in the research. In order to explore conditions, field research is conducted in a refugee camp and urban context in Uganda.
