About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 18 October 2022

As the UK prepares to send asylum seekers to Rwanda in the latest move towards "offshoring" the responsibility for refugee protection, it is important to reflect on the right to seek safety and what it really means today. The United Nations organized the first World Refugee Day on June 20th 2001 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. This UN day is dedicated to focusing global attention on those forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution around the globe. It is an opportunity for the international community to stand together in support of refugees, raise awareness of their challenges, highlight their experiences and to inspire action to improve the lives of refugees so that they can thrive. The focus of World Refugee Day in 2022 is on the right to seek safety. The core message is that everyone has the right to seek safety whoever they are, wherever they come from and whenever they are forced to flee.

To coincide with the World Refugee Day 2022, Frontiers in Human Dynamics is launching a Research Topic to showcase the latest multidisciplinary research and insights into the situation of refugees seeking safety today. We seek submissions showing both the obstacles to this right that States are putting in place, and challenges faced by refugees and solidarity movements.

This article collection seeks to bring together multidisciplinary and diverse viewpoints and, in line with the key fundamentals of seeking safety as outlined by UNHCR for this year's World Refugee Day, welcomes manuscripts exploring themes including, but not limited to, the following:

- the right to seek asylum and the current challenges to this right (legal, political, social);
- access to and across borders;
- pushbacks and forced returns;
- discrimination at borders;
- treatment of people forced to flee.

Keywords: refugee, asylum seeker, refugee protection, refugee safety, conflict, persecution, united nations, world refugee day


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
