Escape can be defined in terms of people leaving spatial situations in which they undergo, or feel endangered by violence or other disadvantages. Cases of escape have an enormous spectrum, and the political dimensions are identifiable in each of these cases. On the one hand they can be seen as direct consequences or even intention of the politics, on the other hand escape itself has political consequences, and can be used as a political instrument or power resource by refugees.

The issue Escape as policy focuses on the fact that refugees themselves can hold the part of powerful agents, and therefore the social sciences should not simply adopt the popular picture of defenceless victims. The present work throws lights on a wide subject area. The contributions deal with empirical issues from five continents. Investigations in social sciences, politics sciences, law, cultural anthropology, and other contexts give copious insights across disciplinary boundaries.

Besides academic working authors also authors with practical experiences are participating in this book, so that the contributions illuminate issues about the coherence between escape and politics in theoretical and empirical diversity.
