False Images: Law's Construction of the Refugee
Taking the UK as a paradigm to construct a detailed overview of refugee law and policy in Western Europe, examines the significance of the appellation "refugee", the reduction of refugee to legal definition and the distinction between "legal" and "de facto" refugees. Demonstrates the extent to which refugee identities are repressed and alienated, both linguistically and legally. Also provides an assessment of the Asylum Act and explores the legal aspect of asylum seeking, the legal specifics of persecution, the concept of asylum and the right of challenge.
