Michelle Tusan, professor of history at UNLV, explores the origins of the response to stateless refugees by international institutions and humanitarian organizations. It has its roots in one of the forgotten stories of World War I when forced migration began as a problem in its modern form. The internationalization of the refugee problem—the then highly publicized case of Armenian, Assyrian, and Greek Ottoman Christian minorities—created the dual solution of the refugee camp and resettlement. This became a utopian and ultimately unrealizable solution to the problem of mass displacement in a period of rising xenophobia and nationalism.
