Studies of forced migration involve a number of concerns—categories and definitions of forced migration, approaches to forced migrants from different disciplinary positions, and the history and political context of situations of forced migration and displacement. This chapter will set the tone of the book by introducing the case of the Kashmiri Pandits situating them in the fields of forced migration studies, the disciplines of anthropology and sociology and the larger literature on Kashmir. While there are different categories of forced migrants, the category of the refugee has often taken centre stage in scholarship, policy, and popular culture. This chapter seeks to situate the Kashmiri Pandits as a contribution to studies of internal displacement, a category that is well known but yet to be as extensively studied as refugees.

Keywords:   forced migration, internal displacement, dispossession, anthropology, sociology, Jammu and Kashmir
