The Human Rights of Migrants and Refugees in European Law

Cathryn Costello

Oxford Studies in European Law

  • The first scholarly analysis of EU and ECHR migration and refugee law that includes the post-Amsterdam legislative measures and the Court of Justice's key post-Amsterdam rulings and corresponding Strasbourg case law
  • Provides insight into the role of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights as generators of migrant rights, aiding understanding of their positions and interactions with each other
  • Integrates doctrinal, empirical, and theoretical material on social membership, global justice, and the construction of 'illegality' in migration law into the EU context
  • Develops an innovative theory of human rights adjudication under the complex and overlapping systems of the EU and the ECHR
