"This work will be of interest to scholars of refugee law, human rights law, and general international law as it is a comprehensive and well-written guide to the legal norms applicable to the phenomena of offshoring and outsourcing of migration control. The real value of this volume, however, lies in the author's awareness of the factual realities of private and extraterritorial migration control. Throughout the book, the author sets the scene, explaining the rationale behind the employment of such policies, how they operate in reality and the practical effect that this has on the individual asylum seeker."
Leiden Journal of International Law
Is there still a right to seek asylum in a globalised world? Asylum-seekers increasingly find themselves intercepted by government ships, immigration officers posted overseas or private airlines carrying out migration control. This volume critically examines the globalisation of migration control and states' obligations under international refugee law.See all Product Description
