RRI Development Process

Development process and methodology

The RRI was conceived as a comprehensive composite index of countries’ response in relation to refugees. Through detailed research and ongoing consultation with a broad range of experts, the analytical framework was created.

It comprises 6 pillars, which are still being fine-tuned, that assess how states;

  • Behave towards refugees in flight;
  • Provide legal recognition of their status;
  • Uphold the political, social and economic rights of refugees and
    facilitate coverage of their needs;
  • Create conditions for their integration, including challenging
    negative public misperceptions;
  • Contribute to the international refugee system; and
  • Facilitate durable solutions.
