This volume highlights some emerging issues in the study of displaced persons in India, like the agency and voices of people who flee across an international border, the identities they forge for themselves, their relations with the hosts and their interactions with the state and non-governmental organizations. Three case studies included here are: (a) ‘Partition refugees’ from East Pakistan to West Bengal, (b) ‘Tamil refugees’ from Sri Lanka to India, and (c) ‘Bangladesh Liberation War refugees’ from East Pakistan to West Bengal. The reader will find that each case is in itself highly complex. The treatment meted out to the displaced people in India has not been consistent. The volume shows that the responses of the state to cross-border displacement have been varied over space and time.
