Millions of people are today forced to flee their homes as a result of conflict, systematic discrimination, or other forms of persecution. The core instruments on which they must rely to secure international protection are the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol. This book, the leading text in the field, examines key challenges to the Convention such as the status of refugees, applications for asylum, and the international and domestic standards of protection.
The situation of refugees is one of the most pressing and urgent problems facing the international community and refugee law has grown in recent years to a subject of global importance.
In this long-awaited third edition each chapter has been thoroughly revised and updated and every issue, old and new, has received fresh analysis. Features include: analysis of internally displaced persons; so-called preventive protection; access to refugees; safety of refugees and relief personnel; the situation of refugee women and children; a detailed examination of the role of the UNHCR and the Palestinian situation; and an assessment of the protection possibilities (or lack of them) in the European Convention on Human Rights.

"It should be at the reach of any practitioner in asylum and human rights. It ought also to inform decisions by the Home Office on initial asylum claims. It is also essential for the specialised immigration and asylum judiciary and for those assembling an appellate case in the Court of Appeal or the House of Lords. Human rights law is an increasing component of law degree courses in the United Kingdom. Academic lawyers will find the book invaluable."
--Law Quarterly Review, 124(Jan 2008), 163-166
