Discusses trends in the concept and practice of asylum over the last two decades of the twentieth century. Most of these changes took place in the industrialized world, particularly in Europe. The most striking development has been a series of attempts to restrict the rights to asylum under the 1951 Geneva Convention. These attempts took many forms: restricting rights to file applications, stricter interpretation of the Convention's articles, the development of non‐Convention forms of temporary protection, and new measures for reception in regions of origin. As the path toward asylum has narrowed, policies to deal with the refugee problem as a whole have widened. This tendency is expressed in what has come to be called “a comprehensive refugee policy,” which basically consists of interventionist policies that provide protection and humanitarian assistance within countries of origin so as to preempt mass outflows.
