Advanced Refugee Law: Developing strategies of legal engagement at the frontier of the international refugee regime



Is someone a refugee if he or she has fled to a state that hasn't signed the Refugee Convention or recognized refugees in its domestic law? If this person isn't a refugee, does he or she have any rights? What protection is owed to him or her by the new state of residence? How can the law, lawyers and legal institutions respond to the vulnerability, needs and capacities of such individuals?
