Forced Migration, Reconciliation, and Justice

Megan Bradley

At the start of 2015, more people were displaced globally by conflict and human rights violations than at any time since World War II. Although many of those displaced, from countries such as Syria, Iraq, Colombia, Kenya, and Sudan, have survived grave human rights abuses that demand redress, the links between forced migration, justice, and reconciliation have historically received little attention. This collection addresses the roles of various actors including governments, U.N. agencies, NGOs, and displaced persons themselves, raising complex questions about accountability for past injustices and how to support reconciliation in communities shaped by exile.
