9780199461172: Displacement and Exile: The State-Refugee Relations in India

This study highlights some emerging issues in the study of displaced persons in India, like the agency and voices of people who flee across an international border, the identities they forge for themselves, their relations with the hosts and their interactions with the state and non-governmental organizations. Three case studies are examined here: (a). aPartition refugeesa, from East Pakistan to West Bengal, (b). Tamil refugees, from Sri Lanka to India and (c). Bangladesh Liberation War refugees from East Pakistan to West Bengal. The reader will find that each case is in itself highly complex. The treatment meted out to the displaced people in India has not been consistent. This study shows that the responses of the state to cross-border displacement have been varied over time and space. The Indian state has sovereign rights to decide who is to be considered as a refugee, who should receive relief and rehabilitation and who is to be repatriated. In the absence of national laws for the refugees in India, the state is the final arbitrator on all such matters.

Book Description Oxford University Press, 2016. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. India has played host to numerous refugee groups since its independence, beginning with the refugees of Partition. Significantly, it has eschewed the major international agreements on displaced people. While this has enabled India to remain autonomous in dealing with refugees, it has resulted in the absence of laws and mechanisms to address cross-border migration, resulting in ad hoc and inconsistent executive responses to refugee groups. Highlighting the emerging areas in the study of displaced persons in India, Abhijit Dasgupta presents an ethnographic account of lives in exile, analysing the agency and voices of those who flee across international borders, the identities they forge for themselves, their relations with their hosts, and their interactions with states and non-governmental organizations. The author examines three specific displaced groups?the Partition refugees from East Pakistan (1947), the Sri Lankan Tamil refugees who reached India in 1983, and the refugees of the Bangladesh Liberation War (1971). Contents: Acknowledgements List of Tables List of Maps List of Photographs List of Abbreviations Photographs Introduction 1. Residues of Partition: Displaced Bengalis in West Bengal 2. Three Decades in Exile: Sri Lankan Tamils in India 3. Exile and Freedom: Bangladesh Liberation War Refugees, 1971 Conclusion Appendix References Index Printed Pages: 272.
