Dynamics of Displacement
Pages: 176pp ISBN: 0-86232-697-4
Drawing on examples from every part of the world, this Report is concerned to point the way forward to realistic and effective ways of anticipating and preventing the rising tide of displaced people. It draws our attention, in particular, to the hardening attitudes of Western governments under pressure from economic migration and political refugees. It also identifies gaps in international law which must be remedied if the human rights of refugees are to be properly protected.
