Research topic : The nexus between the use of cessation clauses in Articles 1C (5) and (6) of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and the return of refugees to post-conflict situations

This thesis aims to study the use of cessation clauses as set out in Article 1C (5) and (6) of the 1951 Refugee Convention and how they can be reformed and utilized better by both State Parties to the Convention and UNHCR itself. State practice will also be studied to ascertain the current use of cessation clauses and how they affect post-conflict justice. It is hoped to look, in particular comparisons between the current situation in Eritrea and the rebuilding of the Balkans.
