Islamofobi

Islam and refugees

In these times of mass displacement and increasing islamophobia, I want to share a finding from a recently published study of mine:

“‘[I]f any human being asks for asylum, it can on no account be refused.’
[...]
the way Islamic law has been applied seems to provide better protection than the 1951 Refugee Convention alone.”

The paper where I explore the rights of disaster-affected Somalis and Ethiopians in Yemen is available through the open access journal Oslo Law Review:

“Disasters and Refugee Protection: A Socio-Legal Case Study from Yemen.” Oslo Law Review, 2(3), 2015.
