'By taking seriously the idea that the refugee is an inevitable yet unanticipated feature of international society, Haddad offers distinctive insights into the significance and intractability of forced migration across borders. This intelligent, important and innovative work deserves to be widely read.' Matthew J. Gibney, Reader in Politics and Forced Migration, University of Oxford 'The refugee column is a melancholy emblem of the age. At a time when passion runs far ahead of understanding we are all in need of a careful analysis of the issues involved. Emma Haddad's beautifully written and compassionate account admirably fills this gap in the literature.' James B. L. Mayall, Emeritus Fellow in International Relations, University of Cambridge
