“The book brings together some of the most knowledgeable experts in the field of forced migration studies, and chapter contributions range from in-depth ethnographic data, large-scale surveys, and policy recommendation.” • Leonardo Schiocchet, Vienna
Syria’s massive displacement (2012–present) is one of the largest, most complex and intractable humanitarian emergencies of today. More than 5.7 million Syrian refugees live mainly in cities and urban areas throughout the rest of the Middle East. Urban Displacement examines multiple dimensions of this crisis from political and socioeconomic predicaments to questions of social belonging, the complexity of the international, regional and national responses and how they affect urban spaces. The volume brings together many experts in the field of forced migration studies and displacement in the Middle East and presents a range of in-depth ethnographic data, large-scale surveys, and policy recommendations.
