Thematic Focus: Regional Approaches

A new book entitled Regional Approaches to the Protection of Asylum Seekers: An International Legal Perspective was published this month by Ashgate. Here's part of the description:

"This book presents a comprehensive assessment of regional responses to the crisis in the asylum/refugee system and critically examines how different regions tackle the problem. The chapters consider the fundamental challenges which undermine an effective asylum process as well as regional difficulties with the various circumstances surrounding asylum seekers. With contributions on Africa, Europe, Latin America, South Asia and the Middle East, and the Pacific, the collection strives to appreciate what informs each region’s approach to the asylum process and asks if there are issues common to every region and if regions can learn from one another."

Read the freely available introductory chapter for more information.
