About the Book

First Published in 2003. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.


"A timely and comprehensive tour d'horizon of refugee policy and international organizations charged with refugee protection. The expert contributors combine theoretical perspicuity with detailed case studies on a wide range of important topics that will surely be of interest to scholars, policy-makers and NGOs." -- T. Alexander Aleinikoff, Professor of Law, Georgetown University

"A decade or more of politics and 'pragmatism' has severely undermined the legal and ethical foundations of refugee protection. In this stimulating volume, contributors with broad-ranging knowledge, experience and expertise, show how to re-align the priorities, and how to rebuild a credible protection and solutions regime, face to face with the new challenges and even in the aftermath of terror." -- Guy S. Goodwin-Gill, Senior Research Fellow, All Souls College, Oxford
