"The premise of this book lies with the centrality of the 1951 [United Nations] Convention [relating to the Status of Refugees] and the fundamental character of the right to seek refugee status under its provisions. The asylum policy of the EU is assessed in light of its ability to realise the right in question in the Union. The emphasis is therefore on refugee status and the scope of this research does not extend to other forms of international protection such as temporary protection"--P. 2.
