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.

Of all the humanitarian impulses in world politics today, one of the most widely recognized is the need to protect refugees. However, as The Problems of Protection explores, what on the surface appears to be a simple proposition can quickly become complex and controversial. This complexity results in troubling variation in how we respond to our obligation to protect refugees - while NATO launches a major military intervention on behalf of Albanians in Kosovo amidst worldwide media attention, the international community's response to Sierra Leonean refugees is slow, inefficient and inadequate. Who qualifies as a refugee in need of protection? Should refugees be returned as soon as possible, or integrated into safer host countries? The contributors to this volume address the often lacking political will among powerful countries and donors, shifting attitudes among affected countries, and the difficulty of rebuilding societies in a world in which the number of refugees will almost certainly continue to increase.

In the last 20 years alone, some three million war-affected people have fled their homes in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. This book tells the story of this modern exodus and the international community's response, spearheaded by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. The UNHCR pioneered innovations like the Orderly Departure Programme, anti-piracy and rescue-at-sea efforts, and reintegration projects for returnees. At times it tried to reshape fundamentally the terms of the debate about refugees. Today the camps in Southeast Asia are closed. Half a million people have returned home and over two million have started new lives abroad. This book takes stock and poses important questions. How did the flight of refugees evolve? How do we evaluate the international response? What has been the legacy in Asia itself? And what lessons can be drawn for use in other refugee situations around the world?
