Chapter Summary

International refugee law is one of the branches of public international law that has gained in contemporary relevance during recent decades. War, internal conflict, violation of human rights and oppression have been the main causes of refugee production in the world. In addition to Refugee Law, two other branches of public international law, namely human rights law and humanitarian law have a direct impact on the situation of refugees, while interacting with one another as well. The failure of the international protection regime for refugees to properly and completely address the refugee issue in Iraq, is to be blamed principally on its theoretical and conceptual deficiency to foresee the phenomenon of mass influx. The UNHCR and others have tried to create public awareness and capacity building. Lack of reference to mass influx remains a missing provision of international law in the context of Iraq.
