Exploring notions of activism and space as narrated by Karen displaced persons and refugees in the Thai-Burma borderlands, this book looks beyond refugees as passive victims or a 'humanitarian case'.

Instead, the book examines the active engagement the Karen have with their persecution and displacement and their subsequent emplacement in the borderlands.

A key focus of the book is to look at this engagement in terms of spaces of solidarity - constructed through patterns of activism, paths of connectivity and processes of cultural recovery.

The book also studies the spatial configuration of borderlands, examining the impact of cross-border activities and their inter-related nature.
