Research by “Refugee Protection Watch”
This research paper explores specific modalities for an international mechanism to monitor the conditions for safe, voluntary, informed and dignified return in Syria. The paper outlines the different modalities available for monitoring, using examples from different contexts. RPW clearly concludes that the options for monitoring the conditions for safe, voluntary, informed and dignified return are available, and best practices from both Syria and other contexts can be used and further explored to fit the Syrian context. However, currently, such monitoring is not happening.
