About this book

How do African states respond to the mass arrival and prolonged presence of refugees? This book answers this question by drawing on recent case studies and examining the politics behind refugee policy in Africa. The implications of this approach are important not only for the study of asylum in Africa, but also for the future of refugee protection.

Reviews

"A useful contribution to the study of African refugee politics...Milner should be applauded for setting out this persuasive new research agenda."

- Oxford Journals, February 2011

'...this is an excellent book, thoughtful and provocative, and an example of the kind of engaged research we need if we care about pushing advocacy and support for refugees forward.' - Jacqueline Klopp, Columbia University, African Affairs
