The orthodox definition of international security puts human displacement and refugees at the periphery. In contrast, the book demonstrates that human displacement can both be a cause and a consequence of conflict within and among societies. As such, the management of refugee movements and the protection of displaced people should be an integral part of security policy and conflict management. Refugees and forcibly displaced people can also represent the starkest example of a tension between “human security” – where the primary focus is the individual and communities – and more conventional models of “national security” tied to the sovereign state and military defence of the territory. This book explores this tension with respect to a number of pressing problems related to refugees and forced displacement. It also demonstrates how many of these challenges have been exacerbated by the “war on terror” since Sept., 11, 2001.
