'A Right to Flee: Refugees, States, and the Construction of International Cooperation is an exceptionally coherent historical analysis and a must-read for anyone researching in the fields of refugee and political theory, as well as for those with a broader interest in researching migration frameworks.'

... a timely and much-needed attempt to trace the development of the concept of international refugee protection from its very early origins in the seventeenth century to the present ...
