(p.199) Conclusion
Displacement and Exile

Abhijit Dasgupta

Oxford University Press

The Indian state has sovereign rights to decide who is to be considered a refugee, who should receive relief and rehabilitation, and who is to be repatriated. In the absence of international treaties and national laws for refugees, the state is the final arbitrator on all such matters. The state policies towards the refugees are often influenced by the attitude of the hosts, dynamics of local politics, and relationship between sending and receiving countries. The asylum policies to a large extent are politically constructed. This chapter revisits various theoretical and conceptual issues raised in the earlier chapters and shows their interrelatedness.
