“This volume is an honest example of the difficulties and possibilities for a project aiming for realistic and reliable analysis in the context of dominant nationalist discourses informing research within the boundaries of separate nation-states…One can only hope that, once initiated, such holistic and inclusive dialogue across nation-state borders would expand.” • Journal of Refugee Studies “This volume is a long overdue endeavour to tackle the thorny and delicate issue of the compulsory population exchange…The argumentative force of the volume lies in the careful analysis of the contradictory and ambiguous ramifications of the convention.” • The Greek Review of Social Research>
