Volume one of this set emerged from an international collquium held in April 1995 in Belgium on the subject of ""Europe and Refugees"". It analyzes the various challenges posed by the plight of refugees today, paying particular attention to the situation in Europe, and to the recent European treaties, such as the Dublin Convention, the Schengen Agreement and the Resolutions of the European Union. Contributors arefrom within and without Europe and are drawn from a wide range of disciplnes including philiosophy, political science and law.

The volume contains contributions in both English and French.;Providing a comparative study of refugee case law in Europe and North America, volume II seeks to offer a different way of interpreting the definition of a refugee based on three elements: risk, persecution and proof (RPP) - summarized in the ""Theory of the Three Scales"". The contributors analyze various challenges posed by the new European treaties such as the Dublin Convention, the Schengen Agreement and the Resolutions of the European Union. They should be of interest to organizations, practitioners and decision-makers in refugee law and to scholars in comparative law.
