Working Paper Series

The RLI invites submissions to its Working Papers Series. The series provides for the rapid dissemination of preliminary research results and other work in progress, reflecting cross and inter-disciplinary interests within refugee law and policy, broadly defined. Recent papers have considered integration, detention and smuggling of asylum-seekers, gender-related asylum claims and long-term encampment.

RLI Working Papers are prominently displayed on the RLI website as a resource for scholars and practitioners worldwide. Papers published in the series may subsequently be published in journals or books provided that an acknowledgement is given to the RLI Working Papers Series.

Papers must be based on original research, conform to the usual standard of academic publishing, be fully referenced and presented in the standard technical format employed by the series. Papers will be evaluated based on their contemporary relevance, contribution to the field, structure and analytical rigour. Please refer to the submission guide available below. Submissions are received on a rolling basis.

For further information, and to submit a paper please contact the Editor-in-Chief, Dr Ruvi Ziegler, at r.ziegler@reading.ac.uk
