Abdelaaty study on human rights, refugee protection published in IJHR

Abdelaaty,-Lamis.jpg"The relationship between human rights and refugee protection: an empirical analysis," authored by Assistant Professor of Political Science Lamis Abdelaaty, was published in the International Journal of Human Rights. Abdelaaty examined the relationship between a government's respect for the rights of its own citizens and that government's regard for refugee rights and found that the relationship between citizens’ rights and refugee rights is modified by economic conditions and the size of the refugee population. She also found that some domestic rights (like freedom of movement and labor rights) may increase protections for refugees, while others (like rule of law) may decrease them. 02/12/21
