THE REFUGEE IN THE POSTWAR WORLD April 8-9, 2010 Arizona State University Tempe campus The University Club, Heritage Room 425 East University Drive Tempe, Arizona

The Refugee in the Postwar World is an interdisciplinary conference that explores the causes, consequences, and contemporary interpretations of the refugee crises that followed the end of World War II. The key objective is to gain a better understanding of a pivotal period of global population upheavals, which was also a critical moment in the formation of the international refugee regime. The conference examines the relationship between the construction of nation-states and the formation of refugee populations, the uneven development of the international refugee regime, the practices of refugee relief, and refugees' efforts to make sense of their dislocation. Taking a global perspective, it focuses on the geographical regions in which displacement was most extensive after the war: Europe, the Middle East, South Asia and East Asia. more
