Dadaab to Dollo Ado: Why East Africa's Refugee Crises Can No Longer Be Ignored

Citing security concerns, the government of Kenya recently announced their intent to close the world’s largest refugee complex, Dadaab, after almost 25 years.

The Diplomacy of Migration: Transnational Lives and the Making of U.S.-Chinese Relations in the Cold War

In The Diplomacy of Migration, author Meredith Oyen argues that migration policy and migrants were integral to the changing relationship between the United States and China from World War Two until 1972. Unlike past works that predominantly see migration issues as either resulting from foreign policy choices or simply existing alongside them, she identifies several ways in which migrants and migration policies were used to achieve foreign policy goals and manage the relationship between the United States and the Republic of China in the Cold War.

Will the House of the European Union Fall?

The European Union has been a significant success. Since the end of World War II, Europe’s gradual integration has yielded decades of peace and prosperity to succeed 75 years that encompassed three European civil wars—the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871), World War I (1914-1918), and World War II (1939-1945)—the last two of which engulfed the world.
