This Research study delves into the intricate landscape of migration and asylum law, focusing on access to justice for refugees and migrants in India. Against the backdrop of India's history of hosting migrants and refugees from neighboring countries, the research navigates legal frameworks, challenges, and international obligations. The literature review highlights the contemporary "perfect storm" of climate change, food insecurity, overpopulation, and terrorism influencing migration patterns. Employing secondary research methods, the paper analyzes legal and bureaucratic barriers in India, immigration policies' impact on justice access, and the effectiveness of international legal frameworks. Case analyses underscore the dichotomy between challenges and judicial efforts to protect the rights of migrants. The paper concludes with recommendations, emphasizing the need for legal aid centers, cultural sensitivity training, language access, outreach programs, NGO collaboration, legal clinics in refugee camps, and policy advocacy. The study underscores the imperative for a dedicated Refugee Law in India and global cooperation to address the evolving complexities of forced migration.
