The Story

Due to the extensive coverage in the media, the issue of refugees has become one of the most discussed subjects in contemporary media and world politics. This book, Refugees in Malaysia: Voices of the Displaced provides a detailed analysis of the Malaysian struggle in managing the complexity of the issues pertaining to refugees due mainly to the fact that Malaysia is not a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention, which may lead to the lack of a policy for refugees and asylum seekers. The writers provided context on the scale of the refugees at the global and local levels. Readers will learns about the great challenges of the women refugees from Myanmar and Yemen who took refuge in Malaysia.

We provided an insider look into their tragedies. We hope that by reading this book we become more compassionate towards refugees, especially women and children.
