Refugees and the Politics of Asylum: Past, Present and Future

This course traces the emergence and development of the current international refugee regime before using the example of the Syrian Refugee Crisis to examine its limitations and international responses to this predicament. We conclude by considering how the current regime needs to be reformed to provide effective refugee protection.
