Mauro De Lorenzo, of the University of Oxford, reviews Refugees and Forced Displacement: International Security, Human Vulnerability, and the State, by Edward Newman and Joanne van Selm. The book seeks to place refugees at the center of the international security discussion. The author argues that refugees are often the cause and consequence of war, making them an important part of security studies. The book focuses on how the international community reacts to refugee crises in terms of legal, political, normative, institutional, and conceptual frameworks.
