There is a tendency to consider all refugees as 'vulnerable
victims': an attitude reinforced by the stream of images depicting
refugees living in abject conditions.
This groundbreaking study of Somalis in a Kenyan refugee camp
reveals the inadequacy of such assumptions by describing the rich
personal and social histories that refugees bring with them to the
camps. The author focuses on the ways in which Somalis are able to
adapt their 'nomadic' heritage in order to cope with camp life; a
heritage that includes a high degree of mobility and strong social
networks that reach beyond the confines of the camp as far as the
U.S. and Europe.
