Responses to being displaced by violence

Responses to being displaced by violence

(p.35) Three Responses to being displaced by violence
Changing Communities

Marjorie Mayo

Policy Press

Starting from the surge of refugees from Syria from 2015, this chapter focuses upon those displaced by violence more generally. From experiences of displacement in Northern Ireland in the relatively recent past, and experiences elsewhere, the chapter focuses upon community responses to new arrivals as well as upon responses within and between newcomer communities themselves. The first story comes from Montreal, Canada, focussing upon the memories of Jewish refugees, following the Second World War. The chapter concludes with stories of support- and mutual support – within migrant and refugee communities, including Somali communities in Britain today.
