Refugee Tales: Volume IV

Edited by David Herd & Anna Pincus

In a difficult year marked by divisive politics, ongoing Brexit negotiations, and a global pandemic, the plight of the refugee has been dropped from the front pages. But as the coronavirus death toll rises, the cost of denial and indecision is paid by real people: old and young, sick and healthy, and the forgotten refugees and asylum seekers who continue to suffer the inhumanity of indefinite detention.

While we’ve seen nations failing and hostile environments on the rise across the globe, poets, novelists and writers have once again collaborated with people who have experienced detention to retell their stories, appearing alongside first-hand accounts from those who have been detained not only in the UK, but across the globe in Chile, Canada and Italy.

In this fourth volume of tales, we hear the ongoing struggle within these ‘hostile environments’, 70 years after the 1951 Refugee Convention which asserts that a refugee should not be returned to a country where they face serious threats to their life or freedom.
