    Abstract : How are access to asylum and other forms of extraterritorial protection regulated in the European Union? Is the EU acquis in these areas in conformity with international law? What tools does international law offer to solve conflicts between them? And, finally, is law capable of bridging the foundational oppositions embedded in migration and asylum issues? This work combines the potential of legal formalism with an analytical framework drawing on political theory. It analyses the argumentative strategies used by international lawyers, exploiting the interpretative methodology of international law as well as elaborate discrimination arguments. READ MORE

  3. 3. Refugee Status Determination in the Context of 'Natural' Disasters and Climate Change : A Human Rights-Based Approach

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Matthew Scott; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018-04-24]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Human Rights; Public International Law; Climate Change; Interpretation; Persecution; Well-Founded Fear; Discrimination; Refugee; Disaster; Folkrätt; Mänskliga rättigheter; Flyktingrätt;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with refugee status determination (RSD) in the context of ‘natural’ disasters and climate change. Considering evidence that the legal predicament of people who seek recognition of refugee status in this connection has been inconsistently addressed by judicial bodies in leading refugee law jurisdictions, and identifying theoretical as well as doctrinal impediments to a clear and principled application of international refugee law in this connection, the thesis asks the question ‘in what kinds of circumstances may a person establish, within the meaning of Article 1A(2) of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol, a well-founded fear of being persecuted for a Convention reason in the context of ‘natural’ disasters and climate change?’Arguing that RSD cannot safely be performed without a clear understanding of the relationship between natural hazards and human agency, the thesis draws insights from disaster anthropology and political ecology that see discrimination as a contributory cause of people’s differential exposure and vulnerability to disaster-related harm.
