Overview

Contributors to this volume examine how the legislative, executive and administrative arms of government have responded to issues concerning the rights and status of refugees and asylum seekers in five common law jurisdictions: the UK, Australia, Canada, the USA and New Zealand. Who and what determines the legislative agenda in this context? Is the legislative agenda driven by the legislators or by the executive? Where does the ‘community’ fit into this picture? Together the essays explain the international context for the responses of the jurisdictions, evaluate the responses from a human rights perspective and assess the integrity and coherency of legal responses as shown by their impact on the rule of law.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'… a nice mixture of legal theory and practical analysis of the Australian legal and political scenes. … clear analysis … excellent empirical analysis, a good bibliography and useful appendixes.' The Australian Law Journal

'[This] book is highly recommended because it offers a valuable comparison of national responses to the essential question [of] how to implement the international rule of law into national laws. Furthermore, it places these responses within a theoretical framework of the rule of law, fundamental to a modern legal system.' Carolus Grütters, European Journal of Migration and Law
