Abstract

The aim of this session is to look at the challenges posed to societies, governments, and secular and religious institutions by the forced or voluntary migration of individuals, groups, and populations within and across political and cultural boundaries in areas directly affected by the holy land crusades. Of particular interest in this context are the social and political mechanisms available or invented for dealing with refugees and otherwise displaced persons; the social and cultural costs (and benefits) of human displacement; challenged or shifting concepts of identity; migration and the labour market; the legal treatment of migrants and refugees; and memories of migration and displacement.
