Eric Fripp: recent publications
The International Journal of Refugee Law is the leading peer-reviewed academic journal in the field of international law and forced migration, and a key source of legal analysis and reflection for lawyers and others involved in refugee protection. Part 1 of its Special Issue marking the 70th Anniversary of the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees 1951, released in December 2021 (see here) contains two articles by Eric Fripp of 36 Public and Human Rights.
The first, ‘Nationality, Protection, and the “country of his nationality” as the country of reference for the purposes of article 1A(2) of the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees 1951’ addresses an important aspect of the Convention’s refugee definition- its reliance on a country or countries of reference denoted as the country of nationality, or in the event of statelessness, of former habitual residence. The current article considers the position of those with at least one nationality- a second paired article on the position of the stateless will be published in a future issue.
The second, authored jointly with Araniya Kogulathas of Lamb Building and Bail for Immigration Detainees reviews the Research Handbook on Child Migration, edited by Jacqueline Bhabha, Jyothi Kanics, and Daniel Senovilla Hernández (Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, 2018) (link here) concluding that the book- ‘a persuasive and high-quality collection’ of essays by diverse authors- deserves to be widely read by politicians and policymakers as well as refugee and human rights advocates and other persons dealing with migrant children.
