The Ethics and Politics of Asylum: Liberal Democracy and the Response to Refugees
Matthew J Gibney
Asylum has become a highly charged political issue across developed countries over the last two decades. This book draws upon political and ethical theory and an examination of the experiences of the U.S., Germany, the U.K. and Australia to consider how to respond to the challenges of asylum. In addition to explaining why it has emerged as such a key political issue, the study provides a compelling account of how states could implement morally defensible responses to refugees.
