Why do people remain in refugee camps for decades? Refugees remain in camps for an average of seventeen years and often for much longer according to Elizabeth Dunn, who explored the phenomenon for her latest book No Path Home. Dunn sat down with Maria Armoudian to discuss what she learned after spending sixteen months in refugee camps.

Elizabeth Dunn is an Associate Professor of Geography and International Affairs at Indiana University, Bloomington. She is an expert in forced migration and is the author of No Path Home: Humanitarian Camps and the Grief of Displacement.
