This handbook marks a key intervention in refugee studies in India―home  to diverse groups of refugees, including an entire government in exile.  It unravels the various socio-economic, political and cultural  dimensions of refugee issues in India.

The volume examines the  various legal, political and policy frameworks for accommodating  refugees or asylum seekers in India, including the Citizenship Amendment  Act and the National Registry of Citizens. It evaluates the lack of  uniformity in the Indian legal and political framework to deal with its  refugee population and analyses the grounds of inclusion or exclusion  for different groups. Drawing from the experiences of Jewish, Tibetan,  Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Afghan, and Rohingya refugees in  India, it analyses debates around marginalization, citizenship and  refugee rights. It also explores the spatial and gendered dimensions of  forced migration and the cultural and social lives of displaced  communities, including their quest for decent work, education, and  health.

The volume will be an indispensable reference for  scholars, researchers and students of refugee studies, migration and  diaspora studies, public policy, social policy and development studies.
