Summary "This volume is a sequel to the earlier volume published by Sage, Refugees and the State. While that volume deals with refugee flows, this volume presents a comprehensive analysis of the phenomenon of internal displacement in the light of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement. It does this through detailed case studies of seven countries - India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Burma and Afghanistan." "The first of its kind and with its strongly analytical and legal perspective covering the entire South Asian region, this incisive and timely compendium will be of great interest to policy makers, human rights activists, jurists, and scholars and students of politics, international relations, migration, sociology, social anthropology, law and history."--BOOK JACKET
