Goodwin-Gill, Guy S.

Examines national concepts, powers and practices of detention; contrasts these with the individual rights of refugees and asylum-seekers under international law. Holds that although not formally obliged to grant permanent asylum, states must treat refugees and asylum seekers according to certain standards and must seek to alleviate their plight. (Author/GC)
