Dispossession and Displacement

Forced Migration in the Middle East and North Africa

Dawn Chatty, Bill Finlayson

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    This book explores the extent to which forced migration has become a defining feature of life in the Middle East and North Africa. The chapters present research on refugees, internally displaced peoples, as well as 'those who remain', from Afghanistan in the East to Morocco in the West. Dealing with 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. The chapters are grouped around four related themes - displacement, repatriation, identity in exile and refugee policy - providing a significant contribution to this developing area of contemporary research.
