(p.13) 1 The Emergence of Refugees as an Issue in International Politics
Refugees in Inter-War Europe

Claudena M. Skran

Oxford University Press

This chapter initiates with an argument regarding why refugees first emerged as an international issue after the First World War. A large number of refugees were created in the wake of the First World War after the fighting has finished. The main reason behind the refugee problem can be found in the very nature of the international system. The chapter also analyses the immigration restrictions imposed worldwide which were viewed as an obstacle for resolving refugee problems. The chapter also studies the refugee problem in detail and also new hopes for its solution.
