Non-refoulement in International Refugee Law, Human Rights Law and Asylum Laws

  • Charlotte LülfEmail author


The twenty-first century has born witness to several armed conflicts leading to displacement within countries, regions or across the globe that underline the need for a solid legal framework. The principle of non-refoulement is a cornerstone of refugee protection and is codified in refugee law, human rights laws and asylum laws. In light of current State practices of migration control on one hand and the net of diverse non-refoulement obligations in international law on the other hand, it is essential to clarify and compare the scope of its protection for people fleeing armed conflicts.
