James C. Hathaway
The Rights of Refugees Under International Law

Cambridge, New York: Cambridge University Press, 2005

K3230.R45H38 2005

In one volume, this book covers national and international court decisions on refugee law and lays the foundation for a comprehensive analysis of the human rights of refugees as set by the UN Refugee Convention. Professor Hathaway has been described as the “intellectual architect of contemporary refugee law” and is respected in the international legal community for his interesting and provocative scholarship. In this study of the rights of refugees, he provides analysis of difficult protection challenges and guidance beyond the refugee definitions set by Article 1 of the Convention. Maintaining the object and purpose of the text of the Convention he interprets the primary requirements of international human rights law and clearly presents the rights owed to refugees and asylum seekers at all stages in the search for protection. This is a major resource for judges, attorneys, policymakers and students of international and human rights law.
