The Global Reach of European Refugee Law Hardback
Edited by Helene Lambert, Jane McAdam, Maryellen Fullerton
Europe has the most advanced regional protection regime in the world.
The predicted impact of this body of norms, including the new Common European Asylum System, has been widely identified as one that will have a 'ripple effect' beyond the EU.
However, very few studies have noted the fact that this regime has already influenced the law and practice of states around the world, for some time.
The purpose of this book is to gather evidence that emulation is happening (if it is), to explore the extent and identify the processes through which it is happening, and to examine the implications of these findings.
A review of seven case studies reveals all but one of these cases provides clear evidence of emulation at some point in time.
The EU protection regime, which has been most influenced by the European Court of Human Rights, is 'naturally' evolving transnationally and spreading internationally.
