Imposing Aid: Emergency Assistance to Refugees
The 1982 crisis involving Ugandans who spilled over the Sudan border is the basis for this in-depth study, the first independent appraisal of an assistance program mounted in response to an emergency influx of refugees. Addressing policy makers while opening this neglected field to scholarly attention, Harrell-Bond documents with statistics and case materials the impact of aid and of aid workers on refugees and their hosts. The research includes interviews of 6,000 refugee households, both in the camps and the greater number who remain outside the aid "umbrella."
