International Refugee Law and the Protection of Stateless Persons

Michelle Foster and Hélène Lambert

  • First book to analyse statelessness through the lens of international refugee law, addressing an issue increasingly dealt with by states and domestic courts
  • Thoroughly analyses the travaux préparatoires of the 1951 and 1954 Conventions and their subsequent practice, showing them to be complementary rather than mutually exclusive
  • Examines the potential of stateless persons who are outside their country of former habitual residence to obtain protection as refugees in international law
