Refuge beyond Reach

How Rich Democracies Repel Asylum Seekers

David Scott FitzGerald

  • Explores why 99% of refugees can only find safety in the prosperous democracies of the Global North by asking for asylum after they arrive
  • Describes how governments have developed increasingly elaborate techniques of remote control to keep asylum seekers away from spaces where they can ask for sanctuary
  • Uses American diplomatic cables from the 2000s released by WikiLeaks and declassified CIA documents from the 1960s through early 1980s provide an unprecedented window into policymaking behind the scenes
