About this book

In this important theoretical contribution to the area of refugee studies based on ethnographic field work among Kurdish refugees, the author has uniquely combined empirical evidence and contemporary sociological theories of diasporas and transnationalism. The book provides essential reading for anybody looking for a comprehensive view of refugee resettlement issues and it will be of special interest to anybody concerned with the topical Kurdish question.

Osten Wahlbeck is Research Fellow at the Institute of Migration in Turku, Finland.

Reviews

'This study provides an illuminating and comparative account of the Kurdish diasporic communities in Britian and Finland and goes beyond sociological observations...Indispensable for undergraduate and graduate collections in sociology, multiculturalism, migration studies, and ethnicity/diaspora studies.' - K. Tölölyan, Choice

'The focus of the book is in the end rather on the integration of refugees. In this respect the book is a welcome and important contribution.' - Eva Ostergaard-Nielsen, Journal of Refugee Studies
