Ruvi Ziegler is a tenured Lecturer in Law at the University of Reading, where he is Director of the LLM Programmes in International Law, Human Rights, and Advanced Legal Studies. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Working Paper Series, Refugee Law Initiative, University of London; Academic Fellow of the Inner Temple; Research Associate at the Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford; and the Civil Liberties and Human Rights Section Convenor of the UK Society of Legal Scholars. Dr Ziegler is also a researcher at the Israel Democracy Institute, analysing questions of immigration, asylum, and citizenship as part of the 'Democratic Principles' project.
Advance praise: 'At a time when the condition of refugees has become a global challenge, Ziegler analyzes the normative and theoretical bases of international refugee law and conventions. He makes the provocative argument that the disenfranchisement of Convention refugees is objectionable from the standpoint of goods such as recognition, integration and public voice, that liberal democracies seek to achieve. A meticulously researched and provocatively argued book. Enlightening for all interested in the cross-border movements of people in a new century!' Seyla Benhabib, Eugene Meyer Professor of Political Science and Philosophy, Yale University, Connecticut
