Review of Citizens and Refugees

I’m honored to share a review by Felix A. Jiménes Botta of my book in German History. He writes:

“By recounting their lives before becoming refugees, their journeys and their struggles and successes in Germany, Häberlen demonstrates that refugees are subjects with agency. This book is a highly original and important contribution to the rapidly expanding field of German migration studies, and to the critical scholarship on human rights and humanitarianism.”

“Häberlen’s book is highly relevant to understanding contemporary German society. … The accessibility of the writing will make it a useful resource for educators of college undergraduates and high school students. Moreover, Citizens and Refugees is a methodologically innovative book that will enrich graduate methods courses.”
