Abdelaaty paper on refugees, guesthood in Turkey published in JRS

Abdelaaty,-Lamis.jpg"The refusal to designate certain populations as asylum seekers or refugees enables Turkey to opt in or out of what might otherwise appear to be generally applicable, national-level policies," writes Lamis Abdelaaty, assistant professor of political science. "When it is applied to a refugee group, whether in the context of a mass influx or not, the ‘guest’ label places them outside the normal operation of the law. It thereby enables Turkey’s government to discriminate amongst groups who would otherwise belong to the same legal status, treating some better than others." Abdelaaty's article, "Refugees and Guesthood in Turkey," was published in the Journal of Refugee Studies. 11/15/19
