About the book:

The second edition of Refugee Law and Policy, which includes all legal developments through 2001, provides a thoughtful scholarly analysis of refugee and asylum law, with enhanced comparative, international, and historical legal perspectives.

In examining the modern refugee definition and asylum jurisprudence in the United States, the various chapters compare U.S. case law and policy with that of other Refugee Convention and Protocol signatories, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. The casebook also compares current trends in refugee law to parallel trends in human rights, humanitarian and international criminal law, with special reference to the work of the International Tribunals for Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Finally, the authors draw from their experiences with displaced persons and refugees in and from conflicted regions of the world including the Great Lakes and Western regions of Africa, the Balkans, Central America, Haiti, and the Middle East.

Since the casebook addresses both substance and procedure, with a focus on practice as well as theory, it is an excellent text not only for students but for practitioners and those in government agencies as well.
