Keywords on Forced Migration and Refugee Studies

The handbook aims at a compilation and brief explication of key terms used in the multidisciplinary field of refugee and forced migration studies. There have been significant debates, contributions, and interpretations in recent years which have reshaped the way academia analyses and maps refugee and migration studies, at the same time, expanding its scope. Research on refugees and forced migrants has had a long history cutting across disciplines, exploring multiple dynamics such as forced and voluntary movements, displacement and dispossession, heterogeneity and agency of forced migrants, human rights, humanitarianism and protection and practice and policy. In addition, academics, policy makers and practitioners are contending with the diverse challenges posed by a global pandemic as it permeates the refugee and migrant space exacerbating the precarious state of public health, particularly in the global south with far reaching consequences.
