Helton provides a rich and descriptive account and assessment of particular international efforts to respond to ethnic conflicts ... The strength of Helton's argument is his empirical discussion and the practical requirements necessary for responding to refugee crises. He provides extensive and insightful analyses of the specific international responses to a number of refugee crises. * International Affairs *
This book provides an analytical approach to refugee policy-making that will be invaluable to students in politics, international relations and refugee studies. * Times Higher Education Supplement *
