Book Description

3 April 2008
In this seminal piece of writing Nobel Peace Laureate, lawyer and human rights activist Shirin Ebadi brings to light the legal aspects of life as a refugee in Iran. Controversial issues such as the right to education, property and inheritance are addressed in detail through a comparative study of Iranian and international refugee law. Ebadi argues that there is nothing inherent in the legal structure of Islamic states that prevents them from upholding basic human rights for refugees, and she reveals how these rights are protected in a country like Iran, where the Islamic legal system is predominant. "Refugee Rights in Iran" will be of great interest to anyone who helps states and international organizations formulate laws that can accommodate the needs of refugees in an increasingly complex world. It will also serve as an essential reference for policy-makers promoting refugee rights in Islamic states for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Weapon Against Oppression 18 Aug 2008
By M. Humkar - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a must-have for those who are currently fighting against the oppression faced by Afghans living in Iran. Shirin Ebadi goes into great effort to detail the rights that, according to Iranian law, must be guaranteed to Afghan refugees: education, access to courts, marriage, social security, and right to property.
Aside from the numerous laws she lists from a variety of sources, she lists excerpts written from the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In addition, she provides appendices which contain detailed laws relating to the treatment/rights of refugees living in Iran.
This book cannot be argued with because it uses indisputable laws to back up every one of her statements. Thank you Shirin Ebadi for your efforts against xenophobia and oppression. I know that I will be referencing this book quite often.
