Refugee law is going through momentous times, as dictatorships tumble, revolutions simmer, and the 'Arab Awakening' gives way to the spread of terror from Syria to the Sahel in Africa. This compilation of topical chapters, by some of the leading scholars in the field, cover major themes of rights, security, the UNHCR, international humanitarianism, and state interests and sets out to map new contours. The concerns over our security are replacing humanitarian concerns over the plight of others. Securitization, exclusion, and the internal relocation of genuine refugees are now the favoured polices. Yet, while central idioms of protection, persecution, and non-refoulment have changed, there are also new demands on refugee law.
The contributors to this book ask whether there are new spheres of protection emerging, for which refugee law must find a clear space, such as the protection of child refugees, trafficked persons, gender-related asylum and conscientious objectors to military service. This timely and valuable book shows that in these uncertain times, refugee law still has exciting and challenging times ahead. Contemporary Issues in Refugee Law will appeal to academics, researchers, students and practitioners.
