People trying to migrate to other countries drown in sewage canals; freeze to death in remote forests; die of dehydration and starvation after their vehicles break down in the middle of the desert or their boat capsizes. When people in hundreds and thousands are forced to flee due to conflict or war or other circumstances leaving everything behind them. This volume precisely addresses the problems of forced migration and the challenges they face and thus offers theological responses.
