Khanabadosh: Experiences and Implications of Afghan Refugee in India
CAS has been awarded a grant by the Research Committee of Jindal Global University (JGU) to execute a project on Afghan refugees in India.The foremost concern of this research will be to critically engage with the experiences of conflict displaced Afghan population in India living as non-camp refugees. The foremost concern of this research would be to engage with the question of what are the key drivers propelling Afghans to migrate to India in larger numbers? Second why does India lack a structured legal regime for refugee protection? An engagement with this question would also entail examining differing approaches adopted by the Government of India to different communities coming to the country in search of refuge. An engagement of such nature assumes significance in light of continued inflow of displaced populations into India, in addition to Internally Displaced Populations (IDP’s) within India.
