Abstract

The article analyses the meaning of protection in international refugee law and argues that this should be limited ot the principle of non-refouelement. It further argues that attempts to ground international protection for those fleeing armed conflict are not supported by the 1949 Generva Conventions for the protection of victims of armed conflict.
