William Gillen, AmeriQuests With characteristic sophistication and thoroughness, this book addresses a critical gap in existing literature, by arguing that the capacity and potential of the 1951 Refugee Convention, coupled with international human rights law, can be harnessed to protect stateless persons in ways that have been inadequately developed and understood. In order to develop their concepts, the authors look at international human rights in regards to refugee law, collecting
jurisprudence that anchors their claims, and complementing it with meticulous and thorough commentary.
