Looking forward to the opening plenary of #IASFM17 with @vanhear53 presenting his work with Robin Cohen on Imagining Refugia. Really not a fan of this idea but happy to be persuaded otherwise...
Various ‘solutions’ have been proposed over recent years many of which focus on the idea of creating islands or states in which refugees could live ‘out of sight, out of mind’, presumably #IASFM17
‘Refugia’ is transnational variant of this idea which focuses on ‘where’ question...I’m already feeling uneasy...since when was ‘refugeeness’ a good basis for building communities? Refugees are many things other than their migration experience #IASFM17
