This article examines a pressing problem for those concerned with research on forced migration – the absence of refugees from most historical work, and the low profi le of history in Refugee Studies. Using examples from Europe and South Asia, it considers why refugees have been “silenced” by history and how we can develop positive, inclusive approaches to the past.
