This book focusses on the period between the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan and the War on Terror, looking closely at how global politics has impacted the daily lives of the Afghan community in Peshawar and Karachi. It looks at large-scale migrations and argues that displacements have increasingly normalised deportation in the name of refugee management.
