Overview

Presents up to date information about complex humanitarian crises.

Includes a specific consideration of gender and generation.

To what extent has forced migration become a defining feature of life in the Middle East and North Africa? This volume explores this question by presenting research on refugees, internally displaced peoples, as well as 'those who remain', from Afghanistan in the East to Morocco in the West.

As well as discussing the dispossession and displacement of waves of peoples forced into the region at the end of World War I, and the Palestinian dispossession after World War II, the volume also examines the plight of the nearly 4 million Iraqis who have fled their country or been internally displaced since 1990.

Papers are grouped around four related themes - displacement, repatriation, identity in exile, and refugee policy - providing a significant contribution to this developing, highly pertinent area of contemporary research.
