From a comparative law perspective, it is argued that, contrary to orthodox doctrinal opinion, there are many similarities in the English and French law of administrative liability, with parallels in the treatment of different types of loss, causation, finding of fault, and underlying policy concerns.

A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Most likely, they cannot return home or are afraid to do so. War and ethnic, tribal and religious violence are leading causes of refugees fleeing their countries. Two-thirds of all refugees worldwide come from just five countries: Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Somalia. 57%. of refugees come from three countries.

This book provides a comparative study of refugee case law in Europe and North America. Nearly five thousand decisions are recorded and one thousand five hundred are considered in the national reports. This descriptive work is followed by a more analytical part, offering a new way to interpret the definition of a refugee based on three elements: Risk, Persecution and Proof (R.P.P.), summarized in the 'Theory of the Three Scales'. This book will be of great interest to organisations, practitioners and decision makers in refugee law, and scholars of comparative law.
