Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter explains the genesis of the book titled European Readmission Policy: Third Country Interests and Refugee Rights, defines its scope and object of research, and clarifies its title. It also outlines the main sources which have been used in preparation of this book, explains its structure, defines its policy context, and comments on related terminology. The scope of the book is mainly determined by two questions: (I) Are Community readmission agreements compatible with relevant international obligations of refugee protection?; (ii) How does the European Community attempt to persuade third countries to accept readmission agreements and readmission clauses, and is this strategy successful? In pursuing these questions, the book examines and lays bare the prevailing views that readmission agreements raise issues of international refugee law.

Keywords: community readmission agreements; European readmission policy; international obligations; international refugee law; refugee protection
