This chapter clarifies the importance of ‘understanding’ experiences of humiliation and mis-recognition that are experienced by people in the asylum–migration nexus. It examines the importance of fostering human dignity and social justice both globally and locally, and addresses some questions on social justice and the asylum–migration nexus. The chapter determines that using participatory research constituted by recognition and respect for asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants is the key to answering these questions.
