Koizumi 11. Postscript: Gerhard Hoffstaedter;
Urban refugees now account for over half the total number
of refugees worldwide. Yet to date far more research has
been done on refugees living in camps and settlements
set up expressly for them. This book provides crucial insights
into the worldwide phenomenon of refugee flows into
urban settings, repercussions for those seeking protection,
and the agencies and organizations tasked to assist them.
This book provides a comparative exploration of refugees
and asylum seekers in nine urban areas in Africa, Asia and
Europe, demonstrating both the diverse of circumstances
in which they live, and their struggle for recognition,
protection and livelihoods.
