Right to Flee book cover
A Right to flee: refugees, states, and the construction of international cooperation / Phil Orchard

Law Library HV640 .O74 2014


“Why do states protect refugees? In the past twenty years, states have sought to limit access to asylum by increasing their border controls and introducing extraterritorial controls.

This book argues that such international policy shifts represent an ongoing process whereby refugee protection is shaped and redefined by states and other actors.”
