This book is a comprehensive assessment of regional responses to the crisis in the asylum/refugee system and critically examines how different regions tackle the problem. The chapters consider the fundamental challenges which undermine an effective asylum process as well as regional difficulties with the various circumstances surrounding African asylum seekers. With contributions on Africa, Europe, Latin America, South Asia and the Middle East, the collection strives to appreciate what informs each region's approach to the asylum process and asks if there are issues common to every region and if regions can learn from each other. Including a discussion on the protection of asylum seekers within the African human rights system, the book seeks an understanding of what legal regime exists for the protection of refugees and how regional institutions such as human rights commissions and regional courts enforce and adjudicate the law.The book will be valuable to those interested in international law, migration and human rights.
