As discourses relating to refugees' access to territory, rescue at sea, and removal dominate political debate as never before, this monograph simply could not be more timely.

Looking at the questions which lie at the junction of migration control and refugee law standards, it explores the extent to which readmission can hamper refugees' access to protection. Though it draws mainly on European law, notably the European Convention of Human Rights, it also examines other international frameworks, including those at the United Nations level and instruments such as the Refugee Convention.

Therefore, this book is of importance to a broad international law, refugee law, human rights and migration studies audience at the global level, and its readership may range from students and scholars to human rights judges and lawyers as well as government officers, policy-makers and intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

It offers an analysis of both the legal and policy questions at play, in order to ensure its full engagement with widely-disputed cases concerning readmission agreements, deportation with assurances, and interception at sea. By so doing, it seeks to clarify a complex field, which has at times suffered from a partiality in both its terminology and substance.
