The Global Reach of European Refugee Law

Genre: Law

Europe has the most advanced regional protection regime in the world. The predicted impact of this body of norms, including the new Common European Asylum System, has been widely identified as one that will have a 'ripple effect' beyond the EU. However, very few studies have noted the fact that this regime has already influenced the law and practice of states around the world, for some time. The purpose of this book is to gather evidence that emulation is happening (if it is), to explore the extent and identify the processes through which it is happening, and to examine the implications of these findings. A review of seven case studies reveals all but one of these cases provides clear evidence of emulation at some point in time. The EU protection regime, which has been most influenced by the European Court of Human Rights, is 'naturally' evolving transnationally and spreading internationally.

Genre: Political Science

This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the extent, method, purpose and effects of domestic and international courts' judicial dialogue on human rights. The analysis covers national courts' judicial dialogue from different regions of the world, including Eastern Europe, Latin America, Canada, Nigeria and Malaysia. The text is complemented by studies on specific subject matters such as LGTBI people's and asylum seekers' rights that further contribute to a better understanding of factors that stimulate or hold back judicial dialogue, and by first hand insights of domestic and European Court of Human Rights judges into their courts' involvement in judicial dialogue. The book features contributions from leading scholars and judges, whose combined perspectives provide an interesting and timely study.

Refugee Protection and the Role of Law

Author: Susan Kneebone
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135046910

Genre: Law

Sixty years on from the signing of the Refugee Convention, forced migration and refugee movements continue to raise global concerns for hosting states and regions, for countries of origin, for humanitarian organisations on the ground, and, of course, for the refugee. This edited volume is framed around two themes which go to the core of contemporary ‘refugeehood’: protection and identity. It analyses how the issue of refugee identity is shaped by and responds to the legal regime of refugee protection in contemporary times. The book investigates the premise that there is a narrowing of protection space in many countries and many highly visible incidents of refoulement. It argues that ‘Protection’, which is a core focus of the Refugee Convention, appears to be under threat, as there are many gaps and inconsistencies in practice. Contributors to the volume, who include Erika Feller, Elspeth Guild, Hélène Lambert and Roger Zetter, look at the relevant issues from the perspective of a number of different disciplines including law, politics, sociology, and anthropology. The chapters examine the link between identity and protection as a basis for understanding how the Refugee Convention has been and is being applied in policy and practice. The situation in a number of jurisdictions and regions in Europe, North America, South East Asia, Africa and the Middle East is explored in order to ask the question does jurisprudence under the Refugee Convention need better coordination and how successful is oversight of the Convention?

Release Date: 2017
Genre: Assimilation (Sociology)

Flüchtlingskrise, Wahlverhalten türkischstämmiger Mitbürger, Debatten um die Leitkultur und Thesen zur Integration haben die Frage der Zuwanderung aktuell werden lassen. Wovon hängt es ab, ob Zuwanderung in erfolgreiche Integration oder in segregierte, sozial marginalisierte Parallelgesellschaften mündet? Brauchen wir so etwas wie eine Leitkultur oder müssen wir uns als multikulturelle Gesellschaft neu definieren? Was sind die Ursachen von islamischem Fundamentalismus und Extremismus?

Das Asylrecht im Rahmen des Unionsrechts

Author: Daniel Fröhlich
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
ISBN: 3161505883
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Law

English summary: Daniel Frohlich traces the development of the basic right of asylum in Germany and determines its place in the Common European Asylum System. He describes the origins of a federal asylum regime within the European Union and outlines its normative framework and effects. German description: Die Asylnovelle des Jahres 1993 markiert einen grundlegenden Paradigmenwechsel im deutschen Asylrecht: Nachdem das Grundrecht des Art. 16 Abs. 2 S. 2 GG (a.F.) samt des in ihm verburgten Inklusionsversprechens Anfang der 1990er Jahre zunehmend unter Druck geraten war, sollte mit Art. 16a GG die nationale Grundlage fur eine europaische Gesamtregelung auf dem Gebiet des Fluchtlingsschutzes geschaffen werden. Diese Offnung des staatlichen Asylkonzepts findet erst in jungerer Zeit im Recht der Europaischen Union - namentlich in dem sich entfaltenden Gemeinsamen Europaischen Asylsystem - ihr notwendiges Gegenstuck. Die unionsrechtliche Entwicklung aufgreifend rekonstruiert Daniel Frohlich das Asylgrundrecht im staatlichen und unionalen Kontext. Dabei zeigt er die Herausbildung eines foderalen Asylregimes innerhalb der Europaischen Union auf und konturiert dessen normative Rahmenbedingungen.

Demokratische Gesetzgebung in der Europ ischen Union

Genre: Law

Das Mitentscheidungsverfahren (Art. 294 AEUV) ist seit dem Vertrag von Lissabon das ordentliche Gesetzgebungsverfahren der Europäischen Union. Mit der Monographie wird die Co-Gesetzgeberschaft von Europäischem Parlament und Rat als Mittel der demokratischen Legitimation europäischer Gesetzgebung untersucht. Im Zentrum steht dabei eine demokratietheoretische Auseinandersetzung mit dem Modell der dualen demokratischen Legitimation europäischer Hoheitsgewalt, das mit Art. 10 EUV nunmehr im Demokratieprinzip der Union verankert ist. Daneben steht eine empirisch gestützte Untersuchung der Praxis des Mitentscheidungsverfahrens, die sich insbesondere der zunehmenden Informalisierung des Gesetzgebungsprozesses („Triloge“) kritisch widmet.
