Throughout human history people have been driven from their homes by wars, unjust treatment, earthquakes, and hurricanes. The reality of forced migration is not new, nor is awareness of the suffering of the displaced a recent discovery. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that at the end of 2007 there were 67 million persons in the world who had been forcibly displaced from their homes-including more than 16 million people who had to flee across an international border for fear ofbeing persecuted due to race, religion, nationality, social group, or political opinion. "Driven from Home" advances the discussion on how best to protect and assist the growing number of persons who have been forced from their homes and proposes a humanrights framework to guide political and policy responses to forced migration. This thought-provoking volume brings together contributors from several disciplines, including international affairs, law, ethics, economics, and theology, to advocate for better responses to protect the global community's most vulnerable citizens.
