         The present  article deals with the problems  of refugees under
         international law. The purpose  is two-fold - to understand the
         legal framework  for the protection  of refugees and  to under-
         stand the manner   in which  the international legal framework
         is adopted by States in their domestic jurisdictions. The limita-
         tion of international law in addressing the refugee problem   is
         highlighted through 'contestations' and 'fault-lines'. It is argued
         that such contestations and  fault-lines exist in the manner  in
         which  conceptions  like sovereignty, nationality, territoriality,
         jurisdiction, and legal obligation are clothed and implemented
         in the international legal discourse. The example  of Rohingya
         refugee crisis from India is employed  to contextualise the dis-
         cussion. Some notable developments  towards  the construction of
         a more robust regime for refugee protection under  international
         law have also been highlighted in the last section.
