Description: 
This RSC working paper examines the dimensions of choice and agency for refugees in 'voluntary repatriation' in the case of Afghanistan. Specifically focusing on the voluntary aspect of 'voluntary' repatriation, the author explores its validity, meaning and practice in relation to legal and political dynamics. This analysis will provide the foundation for a wider discussion of voluntariness in the context of repatriation to Afghanistan. The paper is divided into the following sections after the introduction: "1. Legal and normative framework of voluntary repatriation", "2. Political dynamics of voluntary repatriation", "Voluntariness in practice", and conclusion. Document also includes an annex: "Identification of themes".
