Refugees are usually thought of as victims of political violence—this we do not dispute. Periods of ethnic strife, armed conflict between rival factions, and government purges of political opposition groups, clearly place great burdens on civilian populations.

Professor Peter Gatrell examines the upheaval and struggles faced by millions of European civilians who were made refugees – either by enemy occupation or by the state’s forcible deportation – during World War One.

When protracted unrest reduces the possibility for refugees to return, the relocation of victims of conflict also carries policy implications for citizenship and associated rights.

This chapter examines the application of three branches of international law to forced migration and refugee protection in an armed conflict. It provides a comparative assessment of these branches of international law in terms of their application to protection of refugees in war, refugees fleeing war, and refugees in post-war contexts.
