Research Handbook on International Refugee Law

Research Handbooks in International Law series

Edited by Satvinder Singh Juss, Professor of Law, King's College London, UK

In an age of ethnic nationalism and anti-immigrant rhetoric, the study of refugees can help develop a new outlook on social justice, just as the post-war international order ends. The global financial crisis, the rise of populist leaders like Trump, Putin, and Erdogan, not to mention the arrival of anti-EU parties, raises the need to interrogate the refugee, migrant, citizen, stateless, legal, and illegal as concepts. This insightful Research Handbook is a timely contribution to that debate.

‘. . . he has also brought into the Handbook new issues and debates that have arisen in the context of the changing politics around refugees. The book brings to the forefront the clear uncertainty surrounding many of the issues. I found the book compelling and engaging. . . the topics examined in the Handbook are interesting,and the Handbook is a useful reference tool or introduction to specific topics, issues and debates. The book will benefit academic researchers, postgraduate students, government officials, practising lawyers and lawyers who work in policy. I would recommend this book as a useful guide for the ongoing process of challenging and rethinking refugee law as a whole.’
– Nandi Rayner, South African Law Journal
