ISBN 9781916985346





How can the experiences of the Hazara diaspora show how discrimination, persecution and poverty can drive migration, often following migrants through the countries they travel and settle in?

Displacement of the Hazara People of Afghanistan uses lived experiences to explore the often-neglected facets of migration: that sometimes one can be a migrant without moving, that many migrants are forced to move multiple times, that the experience of migration is often intertwined with that of racism and rejection. By offering stories from different locations including smuggling across borders, seeking asylum in Europe, and facing repatriation, this book demonstrates how rejection and persecution can target different aspects of Hazara identity.

Presenting stories that challenge the dominant narratives around forced migrants, this book is ideal reading for students of Forced Migration and Refugee Studies, Sociology, Politics, and Middle Eastern Studies, as well as policy makers.
