(p.160) Chapter 9 Complementary Protection in a Complicated World
Let Me Be a Refugee

Rebecca Hamlin

Oxford University Press

Complementary protection is offered to those people who are not eligible for refugee visas but who may still be in need of protection. Yet, the features of each refugee status determination regime extend to these non-traditional asylum-seeking processes as well. In Canada, complementary protection is well integrated into the refugee status determination regime. In the United States it is unpredictable and highly fragmented, and in Australia complementary protection is a highly politicized discretionary power of the Immigration Minister. This chapter illustrates that a comparative, critical understanding of a state’s refugee status determination regime can shed light on other aspects of migration decision-making.
