Abstract

BOOK REVIEWS 115 The collection ends with consideration of the European regime. As you would expect from the authors (Guild, Joly and de Jong chapters 16–18) this section is solid enough. The coming years will be decisive in the construction of the asylum regime in the EU. Guild offers a clear description of how we got here and Joly suggests that the EU is presenting a challenge to the whole ethos of asylum and international protection. Before we all become too pessimistic about the future, we should bear in mind the new political spaces that are being created in the EU. There are forms of transnational political struggle in existence which dissent from the dominant narrative of asylum in Europe. While the current picture is bleak, there are many still willing to struggle within and against the ‘fortress’. Our hopes for a more humane regime must rest with them. This is a solid collection of essays which offers an overview of the current position. There are debates going on within the pages of this book which should feed into the current dialogue on refugee law. We have heard much about ‘refugee realities’; perhaps in our new century it
