We would like to share some information on a new book, Refugees’ Roles in Resolving Displacement and Building Peace: Beyond Beneficiaries (Georgetown University Press, 2019, edited by Megan Bradley, James Milner and Blair Peruniak) http://press.georgetown.edu/book/georgetown/refugees-roles-resolving-displacement-and-building-peace.
Beyond Beneficiaries asks: How are refugee crises solved? This has become an urgent question as global displacement rates continue to climb, and refugee situations now persist for years if not decades. The resolution of displacement and the conflicts that force refugees from their homes is often explained as a top-down process led and controlled by governments and international organizations. This book takes a different approach. Through contributions from scholars working in politics, anthropology, law, sociology and philosophy, and a wide range of case studies, it explores the diverse ways in which refugees themselves interpret, create and pursue solutions to their plight. It investigates the empirical and normative significance of refugees’ engagement as agents in these processes, and their implications for research, policy and practice. The book speaks both to academic debates and to the broader community of peacebuilding, humanitarian and human rights scholars concerned with the nature and dynamics of agency in contentious political contexts, and identifies insights that can inform policy and practice.
If you are interested, please share this information with your university’s subject librarian. See details below regarding a discount code (30% off) from Georgetown University Press. You can also obtain a free desk copy from Georgetown if you would like to consider using the book for a course.
Thank you and best wishes,
