The Quest for Legal Protection

(p.101) 4 The Quest for Legal Protection
Refugees in Inter-War Europe

Claudena M. Skran

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the impact of the international refugee regime on the creation of policy concerning the security of the legal rights of the refugees. The customary legal framework proved to be inadequate when the question arose about the safety of millions of refugees in the early 20th century. To correct this abnormality the principal makers of the regime embarked on a twofold strategy. First they sought to form a legal framework defining the status of refugees in international law. Secondly, the refugee agencies of the League of Nations tried to protect special groups of refugees with the intervention of consular services with the host governments. This twofold approach is discussed in detail throughout the chapter.

Keywords:   international refugee regime, security of legal rights, legal framework, 20th century, twofold strategy, status of refugees, international law, refugee agencies, League of Nations, host governments, consular services
