Research affiliates

The RLI Research Affiliates network provides a forum for doctoral students and researchers working on refugee law topics to engage with other researchers in academic exchanges relating to research and developments in the field. The Research Affiliate scheme is open to any researcher registered on a programme of doctorate on a relevant topic at the time of application.
