Policy responses to refugee protection have increasingly been characterized by deals, swaps and bargains. This article examines a variety of approaches to ‘refugee protection and the art of the deal’ and argues that these illustrate a fundamental shift in asylum policy, from a principle-based approach to a political bargain. Importantly, this shift has occurred with—and arguably was made possible by—the complicity of leading protection actors.
