Confronting Barriers to Immigration

(p.185) 6 Confronting Barriers to Immigration
Refugees in Inter-War Europe

Claudena M. Skran

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the impact of the international refugee regime on the breakdown of immigration barriers. It reveals that in the late 1930s many countries began amending their immigration laws to include preferential measures for favouring refugees. Although these initiatives did very little to change the restrictive character of world migration in the inter-war period, they contributed significantly to the development of the idea regarding the treatment of refugees as special migrants in immigration law. The chapter studies different changes which resulted in the acceptance of special treatment of refugees within a country's immigration policy.
