The timely Population Resettlement in International Conflicts is an edited collection of essays studying forced migration, refugees, and relocation of populations within the context of international conflicts, taking as its immediate background Israel's unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip and Northern Samaria in 2005. This volume offers a comprehensive study comparing past cases of forced migration from Europe within the twentieth century with the convoluted situation involving Israelis and Palestinians. An inter-disciplinary project that incorporates political science and international relations, geography and demographics, history and sociology, the book contains a general introduction and overview of forced migration and the international humanitarian regime, a series of case-studies from European history, and an examination of different cases related to the Arab-Israeli conflict: Iraqi Jews relocated in Israel; Palestinian internal refugees in Israel; Palestinian refugees; and the resettlement of Israeli Jews.
This book is highly relevant to contemporary international politics and is of great relevance to those interested in Middle Eastern and Population Studies, as well as International Relations.
