Refugees and Forced Displacement: International Security, Human Vulnerability, and the State


This publication considers the links between security, conflict situations and migration issues, and calls for a reappraisal of how the international community addresses refugees and forced displacement. It finds that human displacement can be both 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. It also explores how many of these challenges have been exacerbated by the war on terror since the September 11 terrorist attacks.
