Professor Tribe’s article is an introduction to a special issue on refugees and asylum seekers. It raises issues concerning what and how psychologists can contribute to the field of refugees and asylum seekers and if psychology has anything to offer survivors of persecution, organised violence, torture, poverty and racism. It asks if psychology and psychologists should be taking a stance to ensure human rights are upheld at the individual and societal level and considers the implications of the individual ethnocentric, political, epistemological and theoretical biases of psychologists themselves.
