A Comparative Overview of Refugee Rights in Europe and India (Published)

By the end of 2016, nearly 5.2 million refugees and migrants reached Europe undergoing severe hardships.[1] Torn apart by war and persecution, most people arrived in Europe from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other countries. Since 2015 many have lost their lives or have gone missing. Women and Children are among the most vulnerable. Policymakers and academics have long proposed cross-regional comparative analyses of policies and laws to enable different regions to learn from the experiences of each other. Against this background, the article provides a comparative overview of the refugee rights and concerns in the EU and in India. The article demonstrates the possibilities for sharing and learning from each other good practices concerning protection of the rights of vulnerable groups and integration provisions.
