"Common wisdom suggests that 9/11 changed everything about refugee law in the United States and in Canada. But did it? "Refugee Law after 9/11" systematically examines the evidence to reveal that refugee rights were already so whittled down in both countries before 9/11 that there was relatively little room for negative change after the attacks. It also shows that the Canadian refugee law regime reacted to 9/11 in much the same way as its US counterpart, and these similar reactions raise significant questions about security relativism and national self-image in the two countries."-- Provided by publisher.
