The Articles in this issue of the San Diego Law Review represent an important contribution to the effort to strengthen our refugee and asylum laws. Through the Review's continuing attention to refugee and immigration issues, it is providing a unique forum for all who are concerned over our Nation's ability to respond to international migration and refugee problems. These problems pose important foreign policy issues for the United States and the international community. We know from recent history that massive movements of people can unbalance peace and stability. We know they can be a threat to peace as much as an arms race or a political or military confrontation. An effective response is therefore more than just a reflection of our humanitarian concern. It is critical for peaceful and stable international relations.
