Summary This book provides a comparative study of refugee case law in Europe and North America. Nearly five thousand decisions are recorded and one thousand five hundred are considered in the national reports. This descriptive work is followed by a more analytical part, offering a new way to interpret the definition of a refugee based on three elements: Risk, Persecution and Proof (R.P.P.), summarized in the 'Theory of the Three Scales'. This book will be of great interest to organisations, practitioners and decision makers in refugee law, and scholars of comparative law
