“This is a well-crafted mix of broad considerations of the production of the refugee, as well as contextualized and detailed considerations of refugees in two especially important regions.” • Chaise LaDousa, Hamilton College, New York

“The book is an important contribution to an understanding of the current refugee crisis and its implications on the host countries.” • Ahmet Oncu, Sabanci University, Turkey


Refugees on the Move highlights and explores the profound complexities of the current refugee issue by focusing specifically on Syrian refugees in Turkey and other European countries and responses from the host countries involved. It examines the causes of the movement of refugee populations, the difficulties they face during their journeys, the daily challenges and obstacles they experience, and host governments’ attempts to manage and overcome the so-called “refugee crisis.”

Erol Balkan teaches economic development, international finance and political economy of the Middle East at Hamilton College, New York. His recent books include Reproducing Class: Education, Neoliberalism, and the Rise of the New Middle Class in Istanbul (Berghahn, 2009) and The Neoliberal Landscape and the Rise of Islamic Capital in Turkey (Berghahn, 2015).
