about

Millions of people are forced today to flee persecution. The core international legal instrument on which they must rely to find safety is the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. This book examines key challenges the Convention faces, on the basis of nine papers by eminent international refugee lawyers, which were then discussed at an expert roundtable meeting in 2001 as part of UNHCR's Global Consultations on International Protection. The papers are published here in one volume, together with the conclusions of the roundtables and other documents.

Editorial Reviews

'The intent of this book was in part to generate support for the legal protection framework and identify innovative approaches. The authors accomplish this by enthusiastically describing and advocating the evolving interpretation of the 1951 Convention's provisions in keeping with its humanitarian purpose. Gilbert is particularly inspirational in his condemnation and his wide embrace of harmonization of refugee law with human rights.' International Journal of Refugee Law
