Since World War II, refugee organizations have faced a recurrent challenge: the manipulation of refugees by warring parties to further their own aims.

Some armies in civil wars, facing military defeat, use refugees as assets to establish the international legitimacy of their cause, treat refugee camps as sanctuaries and recruitment pools, and limit access to refugees to ensure that they will.

Refugees lie at the heart of world politics. The causes and consequences of, and responses to, human displacement are intertwined with many of the core concerns of International Relations.

Yet, scholars of International Relations have generally bypassed the study of refugees, and Forced Migration Studies has generally bypassed insights from International Relations. International Human Rights And Refugee Laws Refugees are people who have crossed an international frontier and are at risk or have been victims of persecution in their country of origin.

Internally displaced persons (IDPs), on the other hand, have not crossed an international frontier, but have, for whatever reason, also fled their homes.
