Refugees in International Relations

By Alexander Betts; Gil Loescher | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

This volume is based on a seminar series, ‘Refugees in International Relations’, that was hosted at the University of Oxford between October 2008 and March 2009. Like all seminar series, it represented a joint effort between convenors and the audiences and participants who provided critical and constructive feedback to contributors. The series was primarily run through the Global Migration Governance project. However, it was based upon collaboration with the Centre for International Studies (CIS), the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC), the Centre for Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), and the Global Economic Governance programme (GEG). The then directors of all of these centres—Andrew Hurrell, Roger Zetter, Nick Van Hear, and Ngaire Woods—offered important encouragement and advice relating to the conception and development of the project.

The audiences for the seminars were frequently diverse, drawing in participants from a range of disciplines and departments across Oxford. However, one important source of continuity was the class of the MSc in Forced Migration of 2008–9 who provided consistently probing questions and a wealth of feedback to authors. A range of our friends, students, and colleagues generously contributed their ideas and responses in ways that shaped the evolution of the project and the book’s eventual content. Without being able to name everyone, we are grateful to Erik Abild, Matthew Albert, Oliver Bakewell, Richard Caplan, Erin Court, Sarah Cross, Sarah Deardorff, Jean-François Durieux, Matthew Gibney, Guy Goodwin-Gill, Jason Hart, Eva-Lotta Hedman, Wouter te Kloeze, Katy Long, Emanuela Paoletti, Dace Schlentz, Anna Schmidt, and Devi Sridhar. Claudena Skran played an important role, both in offering encouragement for the project and in locating and allowing us to use the piece by Hedley Bull which forms the basis of the foreword to the book. Mary Bull kindly provided permission to publish this piece.

The chapter by Patricia Owens is a revised version of an article which first appeared as ‘Reclaiming “Bare Life”? Against Agamben on Refugees’, International Relations, Vol. 23, no. 4 (2009), pp. 567–82. We are grateful to Sage for permission to reprint. The editors are indebted to Judith Benz-Schwartzburg, who generously designed and painted the striking and extremely appropriate image featured on the cover of the book. Esra Kaytaz worked tirelessly on organizational issues relating to the seminar series and the book. Miriam Bradley provided excellent research assistance in preparing
