Human Rights and Refugee Law

Elgar Research Reviews in Law

James C. Hathaway

This research review assembles a comprehensive collection of leading scholarship that examines the strengths of, and challenges faced by, international refugee law over its nearly century-long existence. The literature reviewed addresses the questions of the political and ethical reasons that states have agreed to implement refugee protection in international law; the conceptual boundaries of refugee status; and the systems and structures by which refugee rights are implemented.
