Exile and Belonging: Refugees and State Policy in South Asia
Exile and Belonging: Refugees and State Policy in South Asia
Description
From the Jacket:

The Indian subcontinent has been the site of significant population flows for centuries, and the region has witnessed some of the largest and most complex movements of refugees in contemporary history. The cataclysmic partition of British India in 1947 occasioned the greatest refugee crisis in the modern era, when an estimated 14 million people crossed the newly created borders of India and Pakistan. Nearly a quarter of a century later, Bangladesh too was born in the midst of an unprecedented refugee emergency, as up to 10 million Bengalis sought refuge on Indian soil.

The study traces the history of refugee policy-making and its motivations on the Indian subcontinent since 1947, examining in detail the six major instances of forced displacement on the territory of states in the region. It also examines the changing nature of the relationship between South Asian states and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

In doing so, the volume explores why the states of South Asia construct a particular understanding of 'a refugee' and how they communicate this understanding in their policy behaviour, analyzing also the impact of refugee presence on bilateral relations.

Pia Oberoi argues that refugee policy in South Asia is often tempered by the exigencies of nation building, developmental issues, and political unrest, which may at times at even explain South Asia's minimal adherence to the norms of international refugee regime.

This volume will appeal to individuals with a general interest in refugee policy, in addition to students and scholars of modern history, political science, and international relations, focusing their attention on refugees and refugee policy-making. NGO practitioners who work on the human rights of refugees in South Asia and policy-makers will also find this volume essential.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi

I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.

Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
