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.
