The International Journal of Refugee Law is the leading peer-reviewed journal on all aspects of international law relating to forced migration. As predicted by the Times Higher Education Supplement, it has become a key source for those working in the field of refugee protection.
The journal is an essential tool for academics, policymakers and practitioners concerned with the protection of refugees and other forced migrants. It publishes high-quality articles on issues at the forefront of the law on forced migration, rigorous analysis of refugee law jurisprudence and State practice, as well as scholarship on the history and evolution of refugee law. It also contains summaries of recent key cases from around the world and important documents relating to international protection.
In addition to publishing original articles of the highest academic excellence, the journal also features regular sections containing selected documents, case law, book reviews and annotated bibliographies of reports and other publications.
