Refugee Resettlement: Power, Politics and Humanitarian Governance

Edited Volume

Garnier, Adèle; Liliana Lyra Jubilut; & Kristin Bergtora Sandvik, eds, (2018) Refugee Resettlement: Power, Politics and Humanitarian Governance. New York: Berghahn.

​Examining resettlement practices worldwide and drawing on contributions from anthropology, law, international relations, social work, political science, and numerous other disciplines, this ground-breaking volume highlights the conflicts between refugees’ needs and state practices, and assesses international, regional and national perspectives on resettlement, as well as the bureaucracies and ideologies involved. It offers a detailed understanding of resettlement, from the selection of refugees to their long-term integration in resettling states, and highlights the relevance of a lifespan approach to resettlement analysis.

​"This edited collection promises to become a standard read for anyone interested in the topic of resettlement. The book offers a much-needed critical take on the problematic fusion of (quasi-)humanitarian and control-oriented politics that characterizes today’s global migration and refugee management…. [and] the authors offer a well-informed insight into how resettlement has been conceptualized and reformed in recent decades." 
Martin Geiger, Carleton University
