Over three decades have passed since the first wave of Indochinese refugees left their homelands. These refugees, mainly the Vietnamese, fled from war and strife in search of a better life elsewhere. By investigating the Vietnamese diaspora in Asia, this book sheds new light on the Asian refugee era (1975-1991), refugee settlement and different patterns of host-guest interactions that will have implications for refugee studies elsewhere. The book provides:

  • a clearer historical understanding of the group dynamics among refugees - the ethnic Chinese ‘Vietnamese refugees’ from both the North and South as well as the northern ‘Vietnamese refugees’
  • an examination of different aspects of migration including: planning for migration, choices of migration route, and reasons for migration
  • an analysis of the ethnic and refugee politics during the refugee era, the settlement and subsequent resettlement.

This book will be of interest to students and scholars of globalization, migration, ethnicities, refugee histories and politics.
