Refugee Law in South Africa cutlines the existing law relating to refugees as reflected in South African legislation and its growing body of refugee law jurisprudence as at 2022, while also paying heed to relevant international law, which remains central to today’s regime of international refugee protection and international jurisprudence. The topics covered in Refugee Law in South Africa include a detailed analysis of the refugee definition in South African law, the process of applying for refugee status determination, and the rights of refugees and asylum seekers.
