The Refugees Convention 50 Years on: Globalisation and International Law
Ashgate, 2003 - Law - 338 pages
The authors of the essays in this collection, all internationally recognised refugee scholars and practitioners, look at the controversial hot topic of refugee rights. They consider whether, 50 years after its agreement, the Refugees' Convention can provide an adequate framework for protection. In particular, the authors address: the effect of globalization upon the human rights of asylum seekers and refugees; the efficacy of the Convention as an instrument of international law; the role of the UNHCR; whether NGOs are effective instruments for change; and nationality and citizenship issues. They also consider alternatives and options for solutions to the global refugee problem.
