Ellen Lammers : Refugees, Gender and Human Security

A theoretical introduction and annotated bibliography



The refugee does not exist: people who have been uprooted differ in personality, gender, age, ethnicity, religion and socio-economic background and status. This book offers a completely new perspective, linking together the concepts of refugee, gender and human security. Although these concepts are crucial in understanding key aspects of the current situation, they have not previously been dealt with in one theoretical framework. In addition the book provides an annotated bibliography, which can be used as a guide to the extensive literature.



`It is timely and needed, and I am sure this book will stimulate many academics and practitioners to rethink their work." Joke Schrijvers, Professor of Development Studies, University of Amsterdam.


Ellen Lammers researches in Uganda.
