In this introductory chapter, the editors lay the conceptual foundations for this book. They draw on their own experiences of working on forced migration through different disciplinary approaches such as sociology and geography, and working in different parts of the world such as the Middle East and South Asia. In doing so, the authors grapple with concerns around history, theory, interdisciplinarity, and interregional dialogue that impede the advancement of forced migration studies. They lay out potential new avenues of inquiry, explaining how the different chapters, written by different authors coming from varied disciplinary backgrounds and working on different parts of the world, feed into a larger project of pushing the boundaries of conceptualising forced displacement, thus illustrating the merits of engaging in global conversations around refuge and humanitarian protection.
