This volume analyses civil society as an important factor in the European refugee regime. Based on empirical research, the chapters explore different aspects, structures and forms of civil society engagement during and after 2015. Various institutional, collective and individual activities are examined in order to better understand the related processes of refugees' movements, reception and integration. Several chapters also explore the historical development of the relationship between a range of actors involved in solidarity movements and care relationships with refugees across different member states. Through the combined analysis of macro-level state and European policies, meso-level organization's activities and micro-level individual behaviour, Refugee Protection and Civil Society in Europe presents a comprehensive exploration of the refugee regime in motion, and will be of interest to scholars and students researching migration, social movements, European institutions and social work.
Looks at phenomena related to refugee protection which have all become major terrains of civic engagement in Europe Analyses individual, collective and institutional forms of refugee protection, particularly practices of humanitarianism and solidarity towards forced migrants Assesses the institutions and structures developed to coordinate volunteers' activities which integrate public, corporate and civic actors
