Every year there are tens of millions of people around the world who have fled or are in flight due to the fear of persecution based upon race, religion, nationality, or membership of a particular social group or political opinion, and who then become invisible. James D. White and Anthony J. Marsella bring together essays that address issues emerging from the current relationship of international law, human rights, and refugee health and well-being. This book discusses and critically analyzes the evolution of international responses and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), the influence of the East/West cultural binary, and possible frameworks for peace-building efforts."--BOOK JACKET."
