About The Book

It has been observed that South Asia has the fourth largest concentration of refugees, internally displaced persons and migrants in the world. Many of the refugee issues in South Asia are perhaps well covered but the eastern and north-eastern part of this subcontinent which has experienced substantial refugee flows because of the geopolitical proximity of the host of countries and sub regions in turmoil is, one of the most under reported in terms of refugee problem. In recent times the problem of internal displacement in the region due to sharpening ethnic strife is also becoming a matter of serious concern. This book is the outcome of regional seminar organised by the North Eastern Regional Centre of the ICSSR, Shillong. This book offers detailed information related to refugees, migrants and internally displaced persons in north-east India and thereby it seeks to fill the gap created by lack of authentic information from the area. This book will be of great help to the students, research scholars, administrators, diplomats, policy makers and to the public general.
