The Unit completed a major research project around the "Analysis of Domestic Refugee Law in the SADC". The research was comprehensively evaluating existing refugee legislation in SADC countries, in order to promote the need for law reform in these countries.

Other Research Projects completed and ongoing cover topics such as: evaluating the right for refugees and asylum seekers to request an interpreter; evaluating the Department of Home Affairs’ policy decision to close the Cape Town Refugee Reception Office to new comers and person from other offices of first application; and issues around cessation.
