In loco civitatis: On the normative basis of the institution of refugeehood and responsibilities for refugees
This chapter argues that the international refugee regime is best conceptualized as a legitimacy-repair mechanism with respect to the international order of states. It advances a novel ‘political legitimacy’ account of who should be granted refugee status, which it contrasts with the ‘basic needs’, ‘alienage’, and ‘surrogate membership’ models of refugeehood. The chapter then considers the production and distribution of responsibility for refugees as an issue of non-compliance with the norm of state legitimacy, before turning to consider the distribution of responsibility for unprotected refugees under conditions in which some states do not comply with their duties of refugee protection.

Abstract

This chapter argues that the international refugee regime is best conceptualized as a legitimacy-repair mechanism with respect to the international order of states. It advances a novel ‘political legitimacy’ account of who should be granted refugee status, which it contrasts with the ‘basic needs’, ‘alienage’, and ‘surrogate membership’ models of refugeehood. The chapter then considers the production and distribution of responsibility for refugees as an issue of non-compliance with the norm of state legitimacy, before turning to consider the distribution of responsibility for unprotected refugees under conditions in which some states do not comply with their duties of refugee protection.
