"This Handbook critically traces the birth and development of Refugee and Forced Migration Studies, and vividly illustrates the vibrant and engaging debates that characterize this rapidly expanding field of research and practice. The contributions highlight the key challenges faced by academics and practitioners working with and for forcibly displaced populations around the world, as well as identifying new directions for research in the field. Since emerging as a distinct field of study in the early 1980s, Refugee and Forced Migration Studies has grown from being of concern of a relatively small number of scholars and policy analysts to become a global field with thousands of students worldwide studying displacement, either from traditional disciplinary perspectives or as a core component of newer interdisciplinary programmes across the Humanities and Social and Political Sciences". --Publisher.
The growth of the world's refugee population has been a major phenomenon of the late twentieth century. This volume brings together senior authors from a range of disciplinary backgrounds to analyse the key forces that shape the contemporary experience of forced migration. It considers global, social and personal dimensions of displacement, demonstrating their close interrelationship in forging the experience of refuge. Recurrent themes include the importance o f valuing the resources, capacities and meanings indigenous to refugee communities, and the intimate linkage of the personal and political in the lives of refugees. In addition to providing deeper insight into the challenges and tensions of the refugee experience, the book seeks to provide a foundation for more informed debate on refugee assistance and asylum policies and practice.

This book addresses the issue of refugee protection in Europe, drawing on the approaches taken to the crisis in former Yugoslavia to find lessons for future comprehensive policies. Suitable for academics, students, and policy-makers, this book gives a comprehensive overview of the twentieth century history of refugee protection, the relationship between protection and human rights and European integration in the asylum and immigration policy area. The focus of the book is the development of comprehensive approaches to forced migration and particularly the emergence of temporary protection mechanisms in the European context. Four specific national measures are analyzed and a model for future EU policy is advanced. This model satisfies specified practical and theoretical requirements governing the role of protection in international relations and relations between individuals and states.
"With the recent arrival in Europe of over a million refugees and asylum-seekers, a sense of panic has spread across the continent and beyond. William Maley's illuminating introduction offers a guide to the complex idea of "the refugee" and sets the current crisis within the wider history of human exile, injecting much-needed objectivity and nuance into the debate. Arguing that Western states are now reaping the consequences of policies aimed at blocking safe and "legal" access to asylum, 'What is a refugee?' shows why many proposed solutions to the refugee "problem" will exacerbate tension and risk fueling the growth of extremism among people who have been denied all hope. This lucid book also tells of the families and individuals who have sought refuge, highlighting the suffering, separation and dislocation on their perilous journeys to safety. Only through such stories can we properly begin to understand what it is to be a refugee."--Book jacket.
Many refugees and asylum seekers now in the United Kingdom have trained and worked as doctors, nurses, midwives and other professionals allied to medicine in the countries from which they have departed. However, refugees face considerable problems in their quest to continue or resume their careers as health professionals in the UK. This book has brought together authors from varying organisations and professional backgrounds who are dedicated to supporting the integration of refugee doctors into the National Health Service workforce and it is a useful handbook for refugee doctors themselves. It will help all refugee doctors use their qualifications and expertise in the UK, and maximise their contributions to the NHS workforce. (Adapted from publisher's abstract).
