The article discusses the Global Consultations position paper on local integration. It notes the recognition of local integration as a viable solution for refugees in terms of granting legal status and concomitant rights. It discusses situations wherein local integration may be considered for refugees who are unable or unwilling to return, or in cases of self-settlement. It also supports the granting of secure legal status for refugees who have attained socio-economic integration.
