Description

Forced Migration: Law and Policy, 2nd Edition, addresses the legal framework and policy issues raised by asylum seekers, refugees, internally displaced persons, and other forced migrants. It includes new materials on detention policies, expedited procedures, firm resettlement, fact-finding in the asylum process, gender-related persecution, maritime interdiction, particular social group, terrorism bars, the Convention Against Torture, and many other topics. The principal focus of this casebook is U.S. law and policy, but it also includes a wealth of comparative materials from many countries and regional organizations. Forced Migration provides a more expansive, in-depth treatment of topics examined in the chapter on asylum and the Convention Against Torture in the casebook, Immigration and Citizenship, Process and Policy, 8th Edition, authored by Aleinikoff, Martin, Motomura, Fullerton, and Stumpf.
