Abstract

This article examines a pressing problem for those concerned with research on forced
migration – the absence of refugees from most historical work, and the low profi le of
history in Refugee Studies. Using examples from Europe and South Asia, it considers
why refugees have been “silenced” by history and how we can develop positive, inclusive
approaches to the past.
