It is not often acknowledged that the great majority of African refugee movement happens within Africa rather than from Africa to the West. This book examines the specific characteristics and challenges of the asylum-seeker and the refugee situation in Africa in order to set out a new and critical vision about the situation of asylum-seekers and refugees in the African continent.
The book considers the international, regional and domestic legal and institutional frameworks linked to refugee protection in Sub-Saharan Africa. It explores a number of issues key to the region including the theory and the practice of non-refoulement, an analysis of the phenomenon of mass-influx, and the concept of burden-sharing. It goes on to examine the expulsions of refugees and the historical role played by UNHCR in Sub-Saharan Africa as well as the topic of freedom fighters.
