Abstract and Keywords

This chapter begins with an overview of scholarship on forced migration in international relations, focusing in particular on institutions, conflict, and development. Second, it outlines broad trends in forced migration in Asia, paying particular attention to the last ten years. Third, it examines a few situations in more detail—the Indochinese refugee crisis that began in the 1970s, the Burmese refugee crises that began in the 1990s, and the shadow of a North Korean refugee crisis that many fear in the event of a regime collapse. Finally, it makes tentative predictions about trends in forced migration in Asia and identifies gaps in our current understanding of that phenomenon that scholars of international relations might consider addressing.

Keywords: forced migration, Burma/Myanmar, North Korea, Vietnam, refugee, asylum, development, conflict
