Narratives of Vulnerability and the Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement Programme

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


This session will explore some of the ‘narratives of vulnerability’ that emerge in
contemporary stories told about ‘the refugee’ and look in more detail at the
UK Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement Programme (SVPRP). In stark contrast to the existing asylum provision, the SVPRP exemplifies the latest hierarchy of rights
and entitlements to emerge for refugees. Narrowing the protection space for refugees, ‘the vulnerable’ have become a marker for the brave new world of refugee policy.
