Free Access to OUP resources on Refugee Law

A- A A+

In response to the refugee crisis in Europe, Oxford University Press has made more than 30 book
chapters, journal articles, and pieces of content from online resources freely accessible to assist those working with refugees on the ground, as well as anyone who would like to know more about the framework of rights and obligations concerning refugees.


The materials are structured around four key questions:

  • Who is refugee?
  • What rights do refugees have?
  • What are the obligations imposed on states which refugees pass through en route to their destination of choice (transit states)?
  • What are the obligations imposed on states in which refugees apply for asylum?

The Library gives access to many licensed OUP resources, such as eJournals, Handbooks , Oxford Scholarship monographs and various legal databases in the area of international law such as the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law (MPEPIL), Oxford Reports on International Law, Oxford Historial Treaties
