States, the Law and Access to Refugee Protection: Fortresses and Fairness

This timely volume seeks to examine two of the most pertinent current challenges faced by asylum seekers in gaining access to international refugee protection: first, the obstacles to physical access to territory and, second, the barriers to accessing a quality asylum procedure - which the editors have termed 'access to asylum justice'.

To address these aims, the book brings together leading commentators from a range of backgrounds, including law, sociology and political science. It also includes contributions from NGO practitioners. This allows the collection to offer interdisciplinary analysis and to incorporate both theoretical and practical perspectives on questions of immense contemporary significance.

While the examination offers a strong focus on European legal and policy developments, the book also addresses the issues in different regions (Europe, North America, Africa and Australia). Given the currency of the questions under debate, this book will be essential reading for all scholars in the field of asylum law.
