In Flight from Conflict and Violence : UNHCR's Consultations on Refugee Status and Other Forms of International Protection, Hardback Book

In Flight from Conflict and Violence : UNHCR's Consultations on Refugee Status and Other Forms of International Protection Hardback

Edited by Volker Turk, Alice Edwards, Cornelis Wouters

Description

The impact of violence and conflict on refugee status determination and international protection is a key developing field.

Given the contemporary dynamics of armed conflict, how to interpret and apply the refugee definitions at global and regional levels is increasingly relevant to governmental policy-makers, decision-makers, legal practitioners, academics and students.

This book will provide a comprehensive analysis of the global and regional refugee instruments as they apply to claimants in flight from situations of armed violence and conflict, exploring their interrelationship and how they are interpreted and applied (or should be applied).

As part of a broader United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees project to develop guidelines on the interpretation and application of international refugee law instruments to claimants fleeing armed conflict and other situations of violence, it includes contributions from leading scholars and practitioners in this field as well as emerging authors with specific expertise.
