Abstract

While the Refugee Convention has been the main mechanism for protecting those fleeing harm
in the twentieth century, this paper seeks to assess whether that instrument adequately deals with
twenty-first century issues. In particular, it will assess the extent to which the Refugee
Convention operates to protect women and children. The paper will examine that issue under four main headings: violence against women; refugee camps; climate change migrants; and victims of
environmental disasters.
