Refugees in a Moving World: Interdisciplinary Conversations

The overview below of Centenary commemorations that paid attention to Belgian refugees or were mainly constructed around that piece of civilian First World War history is not an exhaustive one at all. The reference section of a future chapter in the book Refugees in a Moving World: Interdisciplinary Conversations (Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh editor) includes a reference to this page. The book is due end of 2019/ early 2020.
