False Images: Law's Construction of the Refugee
There are 20 million refugees in the world today. Famine, drought, disease, war and gross violations of human rights are but few of the contributing factors to this horrifying situation, and there is little to suggest that this figure will decline in the forseeable future. This book exposes the gross inadequacies and failings of international refugee law, responsible for regulating and controlling refugee movement and status.
