In a protracted displacement situation, refugees are sequestered in camps without right of mobility or employment; their lives remain on hold and stagnate in a state of limbo for a long period. Featuring case studies by experts in the field, this book reviews the situation and results of research and policies that have left refugees as a forgotten group in protracted situations.
