The Origins and Dimensions of the Refugee Problem in Inter-War Europe

Show Summary Details


This chapter provides an opportunity to describe the origins and dimensions of the major refugee groups of the inter-war years. All the refugees of inter-war Europe taken together constituted an integral part of the political, economic, as well as social history of the period. The refugees emerged from every country and went to every other country in Europe and worldwide. Their presence affected both the host countries as well as the refugee producing countries. The chapter concludes that because of the recurrent surfacing of refugees the issue became an essential part of the domestic and international politics of the inter-war period.
