This book provides an overview of the development and substance of existing international refugee law with a view to reveal its gaps, caveats, and inadequacies that militate against the establishment of an effective legal regime to address mounting global refugee crises. The book pursues a reformist agenda towards affording legal coverage to all refugees generated by any genuinely involuntary grounds.
