Refugee Rights in Iran
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, lawyer, and human rights activist, Shirin Ebadi examines the legal aspects of life as a refugee in Iran. Controversial issues such as the right to education, property, and inheritance are addressed in detail through a comparative study of Iranian and international refugee law.
This book will be of great interest to anyone who helps states and to international organizations that formulate laws that can accommodate the needs of refugees.
