This document is a downloadable ebook based on the Free Movement online course of the same name that was published in September 2022.

The 1951 UN Convention on the Status of Refugees is said to be the legal instrument that has saved the most lives in human history. Understanding its terms and how it operates in practice in the refugee status determination process is critically important for any lawyer or adviser practising in refugee and asylum law.

This ebook provides an accessible guide to the meaning of the refugee definition. It includes practical insight into how it operates in practice in the UK, and offers common arguments, scenarios and worked examples to try and give life to the definition. It also looks briefly at the cessation, exclusion and refoulement clauses of the Convention.
