Refugees in Extended Exile: Living on the Edge

This book demonstrates that refugees across the global live in ‘protracted’ conditions that extend from years to decades, without legal status that allows them to work and establish a home. This is less a failure of the international refugee regime than extended exile by design. Shifting the conversation away from the salient discourse of ‘solutions’ and technical fixes within state-centric international relations, the authors recover the subjectivity lost for those stuck in extended exile and situate both the people and places in which displacement is normalized.
