My research focuses on the 'refugee' and the moral questions that refugee status determination raises.
My main focus is using the Kantian understanding of dignity and its relationship to self-respect as the theoretical framework of my work. I am currently looking at gender as the reason a refugee flees, to establish the problems with categorisation to meet the convention grounds for protection.
I am suggesting dignity as the grounding for refugee status determination, which would ensure greater protection for the worlds most vulnerable.
