Out of Place, Out of Time: Refugees, Rights and the (Re)Making of Palestine/Israel
Forced displacement is one of the primary and most visible consequences of the conflict over Palestine/Israel. In this much needed book, Susan M Akram and Terry Rempel examine the role of law and politics in the creation and resolution of one of the largest and most protracted refugee situations in the world today.
The authors review the historical and political background to Palestinian displacement, the situation of refugees in exile and efforts to resolve the issue over more than six decades. Drawing on years of research and advocacy, they examine the legal framework and related state practice governing solutions for refugees worldwide. They also consider the collective and individual rights involved in the Palestinian case and options for solutions from the perspective of global precedent and comprehensive plans of action implemented in comparative mass refugee flows.
