Chapter Summary

The provisions of contractual international refugee law are not sufficient to properly address the needs of refugees in the modern age of protection. If International Refugee Law is to salvage its credibility, it should at least embark upon providing a modern definition of refugees through new codification efforts. Contrary to the contractual international refugee law, the refugee protection regime as such has seen an enormous qualitative and quantitative development due to two reasons; first, efforts by international organizations to develop soft laws, and second, efforts by states not to accept new contractual undertakings. The issue of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) remains a sensitive one in public international law. The notion of state sovereignty is still a cherished principle for members of the international community. Iraqi refugees have attracted a great deal of attention among international humanitarian agencies as a dynamic subject of International Refugee Law during the past decades.

Keywords: Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs); international refugee law; Iraqi refugees; public international law; refugee protection regime; state sovereignty
