Show Summary Details


This book examines the refugee phenomenon, specifically refugees in inter-war Europe, and international responses to that phenomenon. It reveals that refugees constitute both humanitarian as well as political problems on an immense scale. The causes and consequences behind the refugee movements throughout the century constitute the main concern of the book. The book argues that international efforts of the inter-war period composed an international regime which had and still does have impact on the refugee policies. As stated in the chapter, the book tries to contribute to refugee studies by adding to the understanding of contemporary refugee problems.
