By Phil Orchard

Why do states guard refugees? some time past two decades, states have sought to restrict entry to asylum through expanding their border controls and introducing extraterritorial controls. but no nation has sought to go out the 1951 Refugee conference or the wider overseas refugee regime. This publication argues that such shifts symbolize an ongoing approach wherein refugee safety is formed and redefined by way of states and different actors. because the 17th century, a mixture of collective pursuits and easy normative understandings held through states created an area for refugees to be become independent from different migrants. besides the fact that, ongoing concern occasions undermine those understandings and supply possibilities to reshape how refugees are understood, how they need to be safe, and no matter if defense is a kingdom or multilateral accountability. Drawing on vast archival and secondary fabrics, Phil Orchard examines the interaction among governments, participants, and foreign firms which has formed how refugees are understood today.
