International Justice Resource Center. Asylum and the Rights of Refugees. From the site: “States have been granting protection to individuals and groups fleeing persecution for centuries; however, the modern refugee regime is largely the product of the second half of the twentieth century. Like international human rights law, modern refugee law has its origins in the aftermath of World War II as well as the refugee crises of the interwar years that preceded it.” The site has an excellent online resource hub.
