about

This book examines changing responses towards refugees in modern France. The study of the principle of asylum and the treatment of refugees from the French Revolution until the years immediately after the Second World War offers a broad sweep through French legal, intellectual, political and social history. Critical questions framed debates and policy: whether individuals had a natural human right to receive asylum, whether refugee policy was a matter for national goverment, or whether asylum was determined by international agreement.
