Internal Displacement in South Asia
The Relevance of the UN's Guiding Principles

First Edition
Edited by:

February 2009 | 370 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
This book deals with the situation of internally displaced people - those who have been forcibly displaced by natural disasters or development projects.

Each chapter is a case study authored by specialists from seven countries - India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Mayanmar and Afghanistan. The latter two countries have been included for their shared ethnic continuities with people of the neighbouring countries. The authors provide recommendations on how to minimize the insecurity of the displaced, as well as suggesting early warning systems as preventive measures to forestall displacement at the outset.

"Suicidal Honor will most certainly appeal to a wide audience of readers not only in literary criticism, but also in cultural history, anthropology and other disciplines."
