This volume of essays examines key cutting edge areas of international refugee law, including strategies for interpretative harmony, the rights of refugees and the standard of proof in complementary protection.

Each topic is examined from a theoretical and a practical perspective in order to find solutions to the many legal issues and concerns which currently confront this area of law, and to seek ways to advance the field as a whole.
