African Refugees: Reflections on the African Refugee Problem
African Refugees: Reflections on the African Refugee Problem
By Gaim Kibreab
Africa World Press, 1985, 129 pp

The focus here is on the dimensions of the problem-vast in relation to the African states' present-day ability to provide for extra mouths-and possibilities for absorption of refugees through "integrated zonal development" schemes. The author, an Eritrean living in Sweden, goes to some lengths to debunk myths about tribalism and "African hospitality."
