Refugee law in Canada

Project: Other projectResearch collaboration

Project Details


The domestic refugee law of Canada is frequently cited in the jurisprudence and by policy makers as a model for the protection of refugees. As embodied in the jurisprudence, legislation, policies and practices of Canada, it is the result of more than three decades of development. In 2006, Martin Jones and Sasha Baglay authored Refugee Law (Toronto: Irwin Law, 2006) which has since become one of the leading texts on refugee law in Canada and has been cited with approval by a range of courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada. Since its publication, two significant pieces of legislation and a number of court cases have significantly amended Canadian refugee law.

This project seeks to update and revise the text for a second edition, to be published in 2014.
