A matching system for refugee placement

Will Jones from the Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford and Alexander Teytelboym from the Institute for New Economic Thinking at the University of Oxford have proposed a ‘matching system’ that simultaneously gives refugees some choice over where they seek protection and respects states’ priorities over refugees they can accept.

Their paper ‘The Refugee Match’ is due to be published soon.
