Edited by Tim Allen and Hubert Morsink

  • Description
  • Reviews
Examines refugees' own strategies for return that do not always relate to formal repatriation schemes.
It is well known that there are millions of refugees in Africa. It is less well known that there are milions of refugees who have returned home. This book puts these 'returnees' on the map, documenting some of what happens to people when they go back to their countries of origin and start to pick up the pieces of their lives.

Published in association with UNRISD; North America: Africa World Press
"... a welcome addition to this growing body of research. Indeed, it underscores the reality that refugee populations are diverse in nature, that strategies for return are often informal, though not always unrelated to formal repatriation schemes, and that issues of economic viability, as often as security - though these are also related - influence refugee decisions about repatriation. -" Robert F. Gorman, AFRICAN AFFAIRS
"La grande force des auteurs est que ce sont des praticiens de terrain, nourrissant leurs textes d'une infinite d'informations ou de renseignements introuvables dans d'autres ouvrages. -" Rene Pelissier, REVUE FRANCAISE D'HISTOIRE D'OUTRE-MER
