Chapter Summary

This index of the book Refuge from Inhumanity? War Refugees and International Humanitarian Law presents terms and concepts relevant to discussion of the seminal work of James Hathaway and Michelle Foster on causation in the context of refugee protection under the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. In place of the social science approach that focuses on tracing 'efficient causation' between observable variables, it advocates an approach that gives equal priority to 'constitutive causation', that is, to understand how threats are 'constituted' within a social environment.

Keywords: James Hathaway; Michelle Foster; Status of Refugees
