Book review

'Professor James Hathaway's inspiring intellectual leadership of refugee law continues with this outstanding collection of the finest scholarship available. The resources collected in these volumes will be invaluable to anyone seriously engaging with the subject. Professor Hathaway is to be commended for once again delivering an exceptional contribution to refugee law.'
- Colin Harvey, Queens University Belfast, UK

Refugee law is both conceived as a response to the absence of human rights, and is one of the most powerful means by which human rights are restored.

This comprehensive collection of leading scholarship examines the strengths of, and challenges faced by, international refugee law over its nearly century-long existence. Following an original introduction by Professor Hathaway, Volume I addresses the questions of the political and ethical reasons that states have agreed to implement refugee protection in international law; the conceptual boundaries of refugee status; and the systems and structures by which refugee rights are implemented. Volume II takes up the nature of contemporary challenges to the refugee law regime, and examines leading proposals to revitalize and reform international refugee law in order to sustain its vitality in modern circumstances.

This topical volume will be of great interest to researchers and scholars in both law and related fields, as well as to lawyers and other practitioners working on asylum and related human rights issues.
