What explains the different responses of African states to the mass arrival and prolonged presence of refugees? What challenges do African states face in addressing forced migration? Refugee scholar James Milner

Comments provided by Ary Zolberg, professor of
political science at The New School for Social Research, and Jackie Klopp, associate researcher scholar at the Center for Sustainable Urban Development at Columbia University.
