Reviews

'The Global Governed? is a detailed examination of the (underappreciated) role of refugee-led organisations at the local level. Theoretically grounded and empirically rich, the book portrays a wide range of social protection activities undertaken by refugees for refugees. Adopting a bottom-up approach, it shows both the possibility of, and barriers to, participation of refugees in global governance.' T. Alexander Aleinikoff, Professor at the New School, New York, Director of the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility 'The Global Governed? draws on the best tradition of Oxford University's Refugee Studies Centre and its founder, Barbara Harrell-Bond, by starting from the premise that refugees, no matter how destitute and vulnerable, are always actively trying to help themselves. They do not sit back and wait for assistance or for someone else to protect them, but work together to get what they need. By focusing on refugee community organisations, the authors shine a light into the relationships of power that often work against such self-help. They recognise the complexity of different forms of refugee community organising. This book provides a welcome contribution to understanding the political economy of refugee contexts, but is also relevant to policymakers and aid providers seeking to support refugee populations and to localise approaches to humanitarian and development assistance.' Laura Hammond, Professor in the Department of Development Studies, SOAS University of London
