Just Released: The Arc of Protection

We’re proud to be partnering with Public Seminar Books to publish a draft of a pathbreaking study of the international refugee crisis written by Alex Aleinikoff and Leah Zamore, along with informed commentary by a group of the leading experts in the field. This first post here introduces the draft. Later today and next Tuesday, we will publish the five chapters as a series.

The commentaries will follow. We are experimenting here, presenting a preview of a book, for comments, to which Aleinikoff and Zamore will respond in the final version of their book. For this reason, they welcome and are especially interested in responses from our readers.
