The Refugee Law Initiative has a range of publically available resources. 

Working Paper Series

The Refugee Law Initiative hosts two connected Working Paper Series that provide for the rapid dissemination of preliminary research results and other work in progress. This includes postgraduate theses, where of high enough quality. The RLI Working Paper Series publishes research reflects cross and inter-disciplinary interests within refugee law and policy, broadly defined. The IDRP Working Paper Series, at the Internal Displacement Research Programme, publishes research on internal displacement from pertinent disciplinary perspectives.

International Refugee Law Book Series

The International Refugee Law Book Series is published by Martinus Nijhoff under the auspices of the Refugee Law Initiative. It provides a platform for outstanding new studies of the intersecting legal regimes for the protection of refugees and displaced persons. Monographs and edited volumes in the series aim to advance scholarly and practitioner insight into how ‘refugee law’ is evolving globally, focusing particularly on its interaction with other bodies of international law and manifestation in regions outside Europe.


The Refugee Law Initiative runs a dedicated programme of public events which includes its flagship 'International Refugee Law Seminar Series'.
