2) Changing Nature of Forced Migration: Vulnerabilities and Responsibilities in South and South-East Asia
Edited By: Dr. Sara N. Amin, Dr. Varuni Ganepola and Dr. Lakshman Dissanayake
Protracted conflicts, unequal burden sharing, climate change, globalization, and changing policies for immigration, asylum, work and development are changing the nature of displacement and blurring the line between forced and economic migration. This book examines these dynamics in South and Southeast Asia to construct a more comprehensive, interdisciplinary picture of migration that will be useful for both researchers and policymakers. In particular, this book seeks to highlight the migration patterns of groups that are often invisible, even in the study of migration—women, internally displaced persons, environmental refugees and migrants, South-South migrants, and those that stay behind.
