Routledge Studies in Development, Displacement and Resettlement


About the Series

This series is concerned with the complex global issue of forced migration, from its causes and resulting implications to potential responses and solutions. With the numbers of forcibly displaced people around the world hitting record levels in recent years, including refugees, internally displaced persons and asylum seekers, this is an issue that affects not only those communities and countries that people are fleeing from, but also those they are fleeing to.

The series will explore the various mechanisms by which people undergo forced movement, such as war, conflict, environmental disaster, development projects, persecution, ecological degradation, famine, human trafficking and ethnic cleansing. It also seeks to promote a fuller understanding of the implications of forced displacement and how scholars, policy-makers, NGO advocates and those working in the field can collectively develop adequate responses.

To submit proposals, please contact the Editor, Helena Hurd ([email protected]).
