The Making of the Modern Refugee

Peter Gatrell

  • The first comprehensive history of global population displacement in the twentieth century
  • Locates refugees in historical and political context, drawing attention to the stance adopted by governments, NGOs, international organisations and relief workers
  • Demonstrates the ways in which refugees have been represented culturally by means of photography, film, and other media
  • Establishes the trajectories followed by refugees and the meanings they ascribed to their displacement across time and place
