Protection des migrants et des réfugiées au XXIe siècle, aspects de droit international Migration and Refugee Protection in the 21st Century, International Legal Aspects

Series:

International migration and refugee protection are at a crossroads. On the one hand, contested rules and the absence of competent institutions open the door to exploitation, smuggling and trafficking, and also to inefficient, often ineffective management at the State level; on the other, long-accepted rules of refugee protection, such as non-refoulement, are under strain as States struggle to cope with increasing numbers of the displaced and an international infra-structure seemingly incapable of dealing adequately with causes, including conflict, of promoting solutions and sharing responsibility fairly and equitably, and of ensuring protection of the rights of those on the move.
This collection of essays could not be more timely. Coming from a wide range of backgrounds and experience, the authors take up these issues, from the very nature of migration and displacement in a world of sovereign States, through tentative efforts to improve migration management by way of treaty, to the ever-present tension between individual rights and State interests.
This volume provides essential reading for anyone interested in the burning questions of today, and in the role of international law in steering coherent responses and facilitating humane solutions.

La migration internationale et la protection des réfugiés sont à un tournant. D’un côté, des règles contestées et l’absence d’institution compétente ouvrent la porte à l’exploitation et au trafic de contrebande, ainsi qu’à une gestion étatique inefficace. D’un autre côté, des règles concernant la protection des réfugiés acceptées depuis longtemps, comme le principe de non-refoulement, sont mises à mal car les Etats ont du mal à gérer le nombre grandissant de personnes déplacées. De plus, l’infrastructure internationale est incapable de gérer de façon adéquate les causes, tels que les conflits, ou de promouvoir des solutions et de partager la responsabilité de façon juste et équitable, ainsi que d’assurer la protection des droits des personnes en déplacement.
Ce recueil d’essais arrive à point nommé. Les auteurs viennent d’horizons très variés et tentent d’aborder ces problématiques en partant de la nature même de la migration et du déplacement dans un monde d’Etats souverains en essayant d’apporter des solutions afin d’avoir une meilleure gestion de la migration par des traités, en observant la tension entre les droits individuels et les intérêts des Etats.
Ce volume est incontournable pour quiconque s’intéresse à ce sujet d’actualité, et plus particulièrement au rôle du droit international dont on attend des réponses cohérentes et des solutions humaines.
