International Refugee Law presents the subject matter from the perspective of Third World countries. It explores the law of asylum, rights and duties of refugees, law of state responsibility, solutions and much more.

This Reader constitutes a comprehensive introduction to international refugee law from an interdisciplinary and third world perspective. It provides not only a detailed analysis of the 1951 UN Convention on the Status of Refugees but covers regional conventions and declarations as well as other issues of topical importance.

This book will attract a wide range of readers, particularly those involved in international and refugee law, refugee studies, human rights, migration, and social anthropology, as well as students, policy makers, non-governmental organisations, judges and legal activists
