Refugees and Dynamics of Hospitality: The Indian Story

(p.112) 8 India
Immigration Worldwide

Ranabir Samaddar

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with refugee flows into India since independence, 1947. It discusses contradictions in state policy toward refugees and asylum policy. In this context it discusses various court decisions and the developing asylum jurisprudence in the country. The chapter argues that the relation between care and power is not a simple causal one, namely, that by caring one amasses power. The relation is complex. The arrangement of care does not simply flow from the sovereign legal authority at the top. The world of care is as multiple, heterogeneous, and segmented as the world of power. The heterogeneity of power builds up and draws on the heterogeneity of the act of caring. The more multiple this universe, the more complex the game.

Keywords:   refugee, care, hospitality, asylum, court, jurisprudence, displacement
