Abstract

Forced migration as a substantive topic is a new field of academic scholarship. It was first delineated in Imposing Aid, the seminal work by Barbara Harrell-Bond (1986) and in the establishment of a center for the study of forced migration at the University of Oxford in 1982. Two important survey works in the 1980s and 1990s, Hansen and Oliver-Smith (1982) and Zolberg et al. (1989) contributed to the expansion of this academic field of study.
