This interdisciplinary conference will explore 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.
Organized by Anna Holian (ASU, History), Daniel Cohen (Rice University) and Hava Tirosh-Samuelson (ASU, Jewish Studies).
