It has been half a century since the Geneva Refugee Convention came into place, but there is still no comparable international regime which provides for the increasing phenomenon of mobile economic migrants. This volume brings together an international team of authors to examine the prospects for improvements in cooperation and for the establishment of a framework of basic global or regional norms of conduct.
