Less often do we hear about refugee men and their determination to rebuild personal lives and relationships in new countries. This book provides a rich and moving account that at last helps us understand these men's stories' - Gary W. Dowsett, La Trobe University, Australia 'Using theories of citizenship to examine the everyday intimate lives of men from the horn of Africa, this book provides a rare insight about how they negotiate masculinities and sexualities in forced migration and settlement contexts.' - Jay Marlowe, the University of Auckland, New Zealand This timely book moves beyond struggling, suffering and loss to argue that forced migration often provides opportunities for men to pursue new relationships and re-organise their intimate lives. It focuses on the lived experiences of masculinity, sexuality and pursuit of intimate relationships by men who have arrived in Australia as refugees from the Horn of Africa. The author shows that, even amidst the chaos of displacement, the difficulties of living in limbo whilst seeking asylum and the challenges of settlement, the desire for enjoyable and fulfilling intimate relations remains central to the everyday lives of refugee men. This novel work will appeal to students and scholars of migration studies, citizenship, race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality. Samuel Muchoki is a Course Coordinator at the Melbi Institute, Australia, and a trained anthropologist and public health practitioner. He is also a motivational speaker who presents on topical issues such as migration and refugee experiences, masculinity, gender and sexuality, preventing violence against women and public health."@en ;
