This is a concise and comprehensive introduction to both the world of refugees and the UN organization that protects and assists them. Written by experts in the field, this is one of the very few books that trace the relationship between state interests, global politics, and the work of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees' (UNHCR). Looking ahead into the twenty-first century, the authors outline how the changing nature of conflict and displacement poses UNHCR with a new array of challenges and how there exists a fundamental tension between the UN's human rights agenda of protecting refugees fleeing conflict and persecution and the security, political and economic interests of states around the world.Key topics discussed in this work include: The UNHCR as an actor in world politics since 1950; Refugee definition and protection instruments; New challenges to the UNHCR's mandate; Institutional strengths and weaknesses; Asylum crises in the global North and global South; Protracted refugee situations and internally displaced persons; and, Key criticisms and continuing relevance of the UNHCR.

  • Foundations for UNHCR's international refugee law role
  • UNHCR's statutory role and work related to refugee law
  • Flexibility in UNHCR's international law role
  • The crisis in refugee protection
  • UNHCR's approaches to address weaknesses in the treaty framework
  • UNHCR's approaches to improve the effectiveness of international refugee law
  • Concluding remarks: Applying lessons from the past to enhance UNHCR's role in the future.
This book considers the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees' contribution to international refugee law since the establishment of UNHCR by the United Nations General Assembly in 1951. The book explores the historical and statutory foundations that create an indelible link between UNHCR and international refugee law. This book charts the significant evolution that has occurred in the organisation's role throughout the last sixty years, looking at both the formal means by which UNHCR's mandate may be modified, and the techniques UNHCR has used to facilitate the changes in its role, thereby revealing a significant evolution in the organisation's role since the onset of the crisis in refugee protection in the 1980's. UNHCR, itself, has demonstrated its organizational autonomy as the primary agent for the adaptation of its responsibilities and work related to international refugee law. The author does suggest however that UNHCR needs to continue to extend and strengthen its role related to international refugee law if UNHCR is to ensure a stronger legal framework for the protection of refugees as well as a fuller respect for refugees' rights in practice. UNHCR and International Refugee Law should be of particular interest to refugee lawyers as well as academics and students of refugee law and international law, and anyone concerned with the important role that UNHCR plays in the protection of refugees today.
