In-person roundtable discussion and launch of the book, Making Refugees in India (Oxford University Press, 2022) by an IHSS Fellow Dr. Ria Kapoor
Making Refugees in India offers a global history of India’s ideas and practices surrounding the refugee. In focusing on one of the first states to formally decolonise in the middle of the 20th century, the book examines how the shift from colonial to postcolonial – both within the subcontinent as well as the shifting nature of the international order– led to a rewriting of the global idea of the refugee.
Dr. Leslie James (Queen Mary, University of London)
Prof. Peter Gatrell (University of Manchester, emeritus)
Dr. Yasmin Khan (University of Oxford)
Dr. Mira Siegelberg (University of Cambridge)
The discussion will be followed by a reception.
