Contents: Designed with professors, lawyers, advocates, and students in mind, the Refugee Law Reader is a “comprehensive on-line model curriculum for the study of the complex and rapidly evolving field of international refugee law.” The Reader is supported by Legal Assistance through Refugee Clinics (LARC), which is a project of the Hungarian Helsinki Committee. Funding is provided by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the European Refugee Fund. The Reader’s content reflects its main objective, which is to provide materials for twenty plus LARC refugee clinics. The Reader is organized into four main sections providing an introduction and covering both the international and European frameworks of refugee protection, as well as a section on the UNHCR and other entities. Each section is divided into numerous specific subtopics. Many readings and primary source materials are provided as PDF documents. Other readings not available in full-text are listed. Source materials include U.N. documents, treaties and conventions, and cases.
