Free Access Articles Journal of Intercultural Studies Researching Refugees and Asylum Seekers

Journal of Intercultural Studies

This virtual issue showcases how scholarship about refugees and asylum seekers can speak back to stereotypes about this diverse group that are found at the level of the mainstream media and echoed in political debates in western countries. Through a methodologically diverse group of papers, situated across sites of asylum, exile and transnationally in the diaspora, this virtual issue brings a much-needed temporal and spatial dimension to refugee research. Reflections on individual and collective memory, the latter at the level of the group and more broadly at the societal level amongst refugee advocates, brings forth many voices including those of refugees and asylum seekers who are active agents in defining their own experiences. It is also hoped that this virtual issue reveals gaps and spaces for further exploration by new generations of researchers inspired by refugees and asylum seekers, whose experiences continue to demand our attention.
