“It is a very important book… not only because of its quality but also because there is nothing like this in the market in English, Spanish or Portuguese.” • Diego Acosta, University of Bristol
“Provides a comprehensive approach to understanding the regional architecture of refugee protection, and the ways in which the history and politics of Latin America make its regimes of refugee protection distinctive.” • Karen Jacobsen, Tufts University
Looking at refugee protection in Latin America, this landmark edited collection assesses what the region has achieved in recent years. It analyses Latin America’s main documents in refugee protection, evaluates the particular aspects of different regimes, and reviews their emergence, development and effect, to develop understanding of refugee protection in the region. Drawing from multidisciplinary texts from both leading academics and practitioners, this comprehensive, innovative and highly topical book adopts an analytical framework to understand and improve Latin America’s protection of refugees.
