The Collective Responsibility of States to Protect Refugees

Agnès Hurwitz

Oxford Monographs in International Law

  • Charts the development of international refugee law and policy, beginning in the 1970s and continuing right up to the modern outsourcing of regional and offshore refugee schemes
  • Offers an up-to-date policy and case law analysis of safe third country practices under public international law
  • Critically analyses the mechanisms and arrangements devised by States to tackle secondary movements of refugees, and offers innovative solutions to the protection crisis by arguing for stronger international accountability mechanisms
