Drawing attention to the contemporary regime for dealing with refugees (the setting up of refugee camps) Bauman also points to the deregulation of wars often conducted by non-state entities, an outcome of the erosion of state sovereignty as well as the ‘frontier-land conditions in “suprastate” global space’ (Bauman, 2007, p 37). They are on a journey that may never be completed. Bauman gives two examples: Palestinian refugees, many of whom have never experienced life outside the camps, and the three camps of Dabaab in the Kenyan Garissa province, developed in 1991/92 which do not yet appear on a map despite their ‘temporary’ permanence.

They are on a journey that may never be completed. Bauman gives two examples: Palestinian refugees, many of whom have never experienced life outside the camps, and the three camps of Dabaab in the Kenyan Garissa province, developed in 1991/92 which do not yet appear on a map despite their ‘temporary’ permanence. On the way to the camps they are stripped of every single element of their identities except one: that of a stateless, placeless, functionless and ‘paperless’ refugee. Inside the 37 Asylum, migration and community fences of the camps, they are pulped into a faceless mass, having been denied access to the elementary amenities from which identities are drawn and the usual yarn from which identities are woven.

Whatever you choose, you gain some and lose some. Missing community means missing security; 14 Introduction gaining community, if it happens, would soon mean missing freedom.
