Abstract

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.
