Uprootedness, exile and forced displacement, be they due to conflict, persecution or even so-called 'development', are conditions which characterise the lives of millions of people across the globe. While the international community has largely been concerned with refugees crossing borders to flee persecution, violence, impoverishment and brutal regimes, less attention has been paid to internally displaced populations. This book problematises both policies and rights frameworks in processes of displacement, while bridging the divide that exists between refugee and oustee studies.
KATARZYNA GRABSKA has been working as a Projects Coordinator and Researcher at the Forced Migration and Refugee Studies program at the American University, Egypt.LYLA MEHTA is a fellow at the Sussex Centre for Migration Research, University of Sussex.
